REVELATION – Part 11b
REVELATION – The Holy City is Open to All
Notice in the above picture of the Window of the Open Book that the Textbook is open, as well as, the Bible. W. Gordon Brown tells us (From Genesis to Revelation): “John, like ourselves, is bidden to eat (understand) the book from beginning to end [comprehend the Unity Matrix of the circle, the Stargate]. As Israel ate the passover lamb, so the body of Principle, symbolized by this book, becomes our true body. The body of the book and the body of the resurrected Lamb are the same spiritual body.” (From Genesis to Revelation, by W. Gordon Brown, p. 363; [My interpolation.]) As in Part 11a all quotes from Brown’s book will be inside parentheses.
Next is Revelation 11 with God’s two witnesses. Brown says these two witnesses are the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH. Yet, the two witnesses must also be Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy. These two witnesses “are represented as rejected (not understood) by the Gentile world [biblical Christianity and other religions of the world]. The bodies of the manhood [Jesus/ BIBLE] and womanhood [Mary Baker Eddy/ SCIENCE AND HEALTH] of God lie dead in the streets [the ways or practices] of Sodom [homosexuality in the church] and Egypt [material organization]. But the ‘Spirit of life from God’ (the living Science of them both) enters into them, and they are resurrected. As a result, the seventh trumpet sounds and the entire human condition is changed. The ‘kingdoms of the world…become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ.’
“Our vision throughout is of the heaven into which we entered originally when the key first opened the door [Stargate]. Almighty Life ‘which art, and wast, and art to come’ is still the central figure. Before this Life the four and twenty elders capitulate [“to distinguish between heads or chapters”] continually. At last the temple of God is opened in heaven [thanks to Seventh Star-Angel], and we see ‘in his temple the ark of his testament.’ The ark is the means of man’s union with God. Man is in a state of ‘self-conscious communion with God’ (S&H 29:32), with no obstructing veil between. The curtain is thus lifted on the God-crowned woman – that is, on God and (generic) man in everlasting spiritual wedlock.” (Ibid; [My interpolations.])
Now, the “ark of his testament” could also be manifested today as the temple, the body of work, found on the website, Ark of Truth – Mother’s Hood.Wordpress.com. (That was placed on the Internet sixteen years after the beginning of the Seventh Day of Love.)
The curtain that is lifted on the woman God-crowned is that she has two missions to complete. One mission is during the Sixth Day of Truth as the Sixth Star-Angel and the other is during the Seventh Day of Love as the Seventh Star-Angel. This great wonder “is countered mythologically by a great red dragon in heaven. The woman is man as he really is, the dragon is the serpentine (Adamic) sense of man. The woman is great with child. At the point in history of the opening of the sixth seal the world is pregnant with the truth about itself. The dragon seeks to devour the child as soon as he is born. Animal magnetism would break up the oneness of being into organic sects and fragments. The woman, on the other hand, gives her child whole to God, she preserves his divine integrity. Her child is ‘caught up unto God…found in its divine Principle’ (S&H 565:27), safe from the persecuting dragon. Eating the little book saves us from being devoured by the dragon – that is, from being destroyed through disintegration. The two archangels, Michael [Mary Baker Eddy] and Gabriel [Martha Jones-Smith], the [generic]manhood and womanhood of Truth and Love (S&H 567), cast the dragon into nothingness, and there is salvation [SCIENCE AND HEALTH] for mankind. The woman’s man child is our own divinely mature manhood always at the point of unfolding childhood [where man, woman, and child are one with God].” (p. 364; [My interpolations.])
“But Truth [Michael] and Love [Gabriel] are also the feet of the angel who brings the little book from heaven (S&H 558:16). In this ‘mighty angel’ Michael and Gabriel combine as one. ‘These angels deliver us from the depths’ (S&H 567:3). It is thus Gabriel’s power over the sea and Michael’s power over the earth that neutralize the beasts of Revelation 13. These two beasts of lust and hypocrisy (S&H 567:28) are the twin agents of the great red dragon. ‘Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!’ says the text, when the deceiving dragon has been expelled from heaven and cast into the earth.” (Ibid; [My interpolations.])
The two feet of the Star-Angels in the 9th and 10th illustrations of Christ and Christmas clearly depict Mary Baker Eddy’s left foot (for Michael) in CHRISTIAN UNITY while we see Martha’s right foot (for Gabriel) in TRUTH versus ERROR. These two women are the two sentinels that Mary Baker Eddy placed upon the Sentinel cover.
The red dragon’s nothingness must be established on earth. As the text of ‘The Apocalypse’ shows, this means, in practice, that divine Science [with its right foot – X] and Christian Science [with its left foot – +] must be found to operate as one [Holy City].
“None of the inhabiters of the earth and the sea, whether they are small or great, rich or poor, free or bond, may buy or sell unless they have the ‘mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name’ stamped in their right hands [signature of approval hand in legalities], or in their foreheads [conscious thought].” (Ibid; [My interpolations.]) This number is 666 (sex, sex, sex, that which mentally apposes the main 600 pages of the Textbook and the 66 books of the BIBLE). By the way, there are three types of sexual creation found in the story of Adam.
Those with the mark of the beast are “the antitheses of the hundred and forty and four thousand who have their Father’s name written in their foreheads, as recorded in Revelation 7. These, now, in company with the Lamb, sing a new song of rejoicing. They do this ‘before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders,’ showing that the setting is still the original heaven depicted in Revelation 4. The hundred and forty and four thousand rejoice in the understanding that human consciousness (earth) is born of unfathomable Mind (heaven), and does not come up out of the depths of the collective unconscious (sea).” (Ibid)
Next comes the reaping, harvest time, and the fall of Babylon. The grapes are thrown into the winepress (God’s Love). Righteous judgment is still being passed upon evil. “When the trumpets first sounded, ‘the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament.’ Here, in Revelation 15, we are told once again that ‘the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.’ Man’s unity with God (typified by the woman in Revelation 12 who appears when the ark is revealed in heaven) ensures the fall of the harlot Babylon.” (Pages 364 and 365) I believe that Window of the Open Book, of 1894, was the first opening of heaven while the second opening of heaven is when Martha understood and opened up the Window’s Matrix structure and explained it to the world on her website.
In Science there really is no harlot, but this harlot appears to exist as a material organized Mother Church located in Boston. This Babylonian woman is the opposite of the woman God-crowned. “The woman is soon to appear as the holy city, New Jerusalem, the bride and wife of the Lamb, in contrast to the harlot city, Babylon. In the sense that ‘the greatest wrong is but a supposititious opposite of the highest right’ (S&H 368:1), the one is the reverse presentation of the other.” (Page 365) Today’s Mother Church is the opposite of The First Church of Christ Scientist established by Mary Baker Eddy.
Next comes the topic of the seven golden vials full of consolation and wrath (Love) of God and seven angels emerging from the temple. These vials are poured upon the earth. “These seven angelic vials, full of seven plagues, have ‘full compensation in the law of Love.’ That which our ‘suffering sense deems wrathful and afflictive’ is, in Science, the very presence and activity of divine Love (S&H 574:17-30). Love demands perfection, and what appears as the wrath of God is the actual perfection of Love itself eliminating imperfection.” (Ibid) This pouring corresponds with the trumpets. “The purpose of both sequences is to bring judgment on the harlot Babylon, and on the great red dragon [ecclesiastical despotism] with which she [the harlot] is identified.” (Ibid; [My interpolations.]
The Babylonian woman’s forehead has the name MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH written upon it. She wears purple and scarlet, and precious stones, the great whore sits on many waters (spiritual teachings). “Her cup is ‘full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication,’ and she is drunk with the blood of saints. She is carried on the back of a scarlet coloured beast, typical of the red dragon.” (Ibid)
Revelation 17 and 18 describe the Babylon consciousness. It is mentioned more than once that her fall takes place in one hour. Today the symbol of one hour is a period of 20.8333 years. In other words the belief in a false one-world order will end. It has already begun with the vote on BREXIT. The 20.8333 years began on June 6, 1996 and ends in February 2017. The false consciousness is burned with fire (the process of spiritual baptism). A mighty angel takes up a stone that resembles a millstone and throws it into the sea (astrological teachings and beliefs). To me this is telling us that the divine infinite calculus (the Christ millstone) of the Unity Matrix will be thrown (introduced) into the unconscious thoughts of mankind. The result of this takes place as the destruction of women’s desire to go on giving birth to material organized physical bodies (nations of peoples). Also, the desire to continue with a Mother Church will be destroyed. Yet, the symbol of one hour, in regards to Jesus, probably referred to a shorter period of time of sixty minutes. “At the last supper, prior to the crucifixion, Jesus ‘knew that his hour was come’ (John 13:1). Speaking to the disciples of a woman in travail he said that her ‘hour’ is come. ‘Could ye not watch with me one hour?’ he pleaded with his disciples, as he was about to dissolve the birth-death cycle, typified in the Bible by Babylon.
“Once Babylon has fallen, the multitude of the human race – the many waters on which the harlot sat – is released to appear in its true identity. The jubilant cry goes up. ‘Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.’ This is accompanied by the announcement of the marriage of the Lamb and the bride. We read: ‘Let us be glad and rejoice…for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready…Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.’” (Pages 365 and 366)
It is presented in the Old Testament that when the mother dies then the son’s bride comes to him. When the desire to conceive and give birth to material persons via sex is given up then the real bride will come, the Bride City of God.
“A marvelous moment follows. The vision that arises foreshadows the absolute Science of Christian Science. Scofield calls it ‘the second coming of Christ in glory’ (SRB p.1348). A rider on a white horse is followed by armies of riders all on white horses. The Leader’s name is ‘Faithful and True,’ and also ‘The Word of God.’ He is clad in a vesture dipped in blood. His appearing is the signal for the final battle of Armageddon to begin. The only leader today is God’s impersonal Word.” (p. 366)
Yet, Mary Baker Eddy tells us that the Word is the Bride. So, is not this second coming of Christ in glory really presenting the Lone Stranger – Mary Baker Eddy? Is she not the Leader who is “Faithful and True”? And is not her army today’s Christian Scientists who are also faithful and true to the Word of God (the Bride)? Brown depersonalizes it all though, with the marriage between the two books – the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES. He writes: “The wedding of these two textbooks and the wedding of the Lamb and the bride are two aspects of the same wedding. Faithfully wedded to the divine Word – coming forth together from the same divine source – we, man, are the Christ, Christianity, Science, bringing to birth the holy city of Revelation 21, as the true idea of ourselves and our world.” (p. 366)
“Infidelity to God’s Word is the result of Babylon’s seduction and captivation of mankind, as instigated by the dragon and his two beasts. To overcome this, an ‘angel [God’s divine messenger] standing in the sun’ (identical with ‘the woman’ of Revelation 12 – S&H 561:8) sets in motion the battle of Armageddon, during which the rider on the horse and his [her] armies cast the dragon and his beasts into a lake of fire and brimstone.
“To secure the victory, an angel comes down from heaven ‘having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.’ He binds the dragon for a thousand years and seals him up in the pit. The pit of psychic unconscious, with its primordial time sense, and archetypal myths, is indeed bottomless. The further thought goes back in time the more insoluble becomes the problem of origins. Mary Baker Eddy once wrote that the thousand years referred to in the text is a ‘unit of nothingness’ (Essays and Other Footprints p.137). The ‘numerals of infinity called seven days’ being units (ideas) of eternity, the thousand-year periods of time are, as time, unites of nothingness. The dragon ‘loosed a little season’ signifies his ultimate dissolution. The key, the chain, and the seal, which achieve this dissolution are the same key to the Science of the Scriptures, the same chain of Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love, and the same seal of the living God which seals in their foreheads the hundred and forty and four thousand at the opening of the sixth seal.” (Ibid)
The first resurrection, Brown says, is the vanquishing of animal magnetism. “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power.” The Lamb that opens the seven seals is the resurrected Lamb. “Primarily, what Jesus overcame at the crucifixion was the first death, or birth into matter. The bride which he wedded thereafter as his body was the foursquare matrix of eternal life over which the second death (death itself) has no power. Mary Baker Eddy once said that ‘to be born into the belief of matter is the last enemy to be overcome – death – physical life.’ She added: ‘Mankind has reached the last enemy and knows it not’ (Collectanea p.31).” (p. 367)
The goal for all human society is the Holy City Matrix. “Faithful and true to the Word of God, humanity is the Christ, Christianity, Science. We are man in God’s image when we come forth together from the divinely creative Word as one harmonious Christ-body. Then we are the Lamb wedded to the bride.” (Ibid)
Mary Baker Eddy said of this Christ-body: “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 Revelation 22 the curse of Adam man is no more: “And there shall be no more curse.” Brown also believes that Eve was cursed to bring forth in sorrow. Yet, I do not believe this to be so. It was not Eve (misidentified woman by Adam man or mortal mind) that the Lord God spoke to but the woman. To limited mortal mind it appeared to be a curse for the woman to bring forth (give birth to mankind) in sorrow, but this is not the reality of the circumstances. The woman was actually charged with a God-crowned mission to conceive and give birth to the spiritual ideal and to bruise the head of animal magnetism. Mary Baker Eddy fulfilled this mission, so the “so-called curse” is no more because womanhood has fulfilled her God-crowned mission. Brown speaks of our world today: “The threat of an inordinate population explosion by the end of the twentieth century – the belief that the resources of Adam’s earth are incapable of satisfying the demands of Eve’s progeny – no longer imperils mankind. Instead, the tree of life (womanhood) is fertilized and nourished by the river of life (manhood), that proceeds out of the throne of God and the Lamb.” (Ibid)
Yet, many mortals today are still concerned about over populating the earth. They have things like Planned Parenthood, birth control, abortions, etc. They have made biological weapons to control the population numbers. They have created wars to kill people off. Yet the simplest answer to it all is to follow the Master’s instructions laid forth in the New Testament. This calls for men and women to stop having sexual intercourse. Yet who is willing to take this spiritual footstep and obey Christ Jesus? Mary Baker Eddy tried to wake up her students on this topic. I grew up attending the Christian Science Sunday school. There was not one teacher who taught abstinence! Why? Because a majority of Christian Scientists still believe in material organization of Church (Eden, the body). Augusta Stetson, who was crucified by the material organization called church, taught abstinence, and she learned this way of Life from Mary Baker Eddy. Our Leader taught us this fact in her chapter on “Marriage.” How many Christian Scientists just shrug off her words as something to be accomplished far off in the future?
“God’s creation intact
“Christian Science presents unfoldment, not accretion; it manifests no material growth from molecule to mind, but an impartation of the divine Mind to man and the universe. Proportionately as human generation ceases, the unbroken links of eternal, harmonious being will be spiritually discerned; and man, not of the earth earthly but coexistent with God, will appear. The scientific fact that man and the universe are evolved from Spirit, and so are spiritual, is as fixed in divine Science as is the proof that mortals gain the sense of health only as they lose the sense of sin and disease. Mortals can never understand God’s creation while believing that man is a creator. God’s children already created will be cognized only as man finds the truth of being. Thus it is that the real, ideal man appears in proportion as the false and material disappears. No longer to marry or to be ‘given in marriage’ neither closes man’s continuity nor his sense of increasing number in God’s infinite plan. Spiritually to understand that there is but one creator, God, unfolds all creation, confirms the Scriptures, brings the sweet assurance of no parting, no pain, and of man deathless and perfect and eternal.
“If Christian Scientists educate their own offspring spiritually [when these words were written many Christian Scientists had children before they became Christian Scientists], they can educate others spiritually and not conflict with the scientific sense of God’s creation. Some day the child [educated in Christian Science] will ask his parent: ‘Do you keep the First Commandment? Do you have one God and creator, or is man a creator?’ If the father replies, ‘God creates man through man,’ the child may ask, ‘Do you teach that Spirit creates materially, or do you declare that Spirit is infinite, therefore matter is out of the question?’ Jesus said, ‘The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world [of Spirit], and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage.’” Although I read these words when I grew up I did not really take them into consideration for a way to live my life! I was asleep in the Adam dream. The fairy tales fooled me, teaching that the woman finds her prince, they get married, and live happily ever after. My physical parents did not tell me, “You should not get married.” So, I ignored the wisdom of Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy and I got married. I have not lived happily ever after because I got married to a man. I have had to come to the understanding that I am not married to a physical man, that God is my true husband (and my wife, and my Father, and my Mother, and my sister, and my brother, and my child, and relatives, neighbors, and friends). I do not find my happiness in other people or being around other people, my happiness comes from God and the people that I converse with are in Truth God’s image and likeness. It is not always easy to keep this in our thinking, as we are so fooled by the five physical senses 24/7, but it is something that we all need to strive to do (to keep it in our conscious thought).
I have come to realize over the years that sex between a man and a woman is wrong, just as much as sex between a man and a man, or a woman and a woman is wrong. Sex period is not God’s Way, and the sooner mankind wakes up from the Adam dream and realizes this Truth the better. Having children via sex is committing adultery.
“The Lamb and his bride have become the ‘Lord God Almighty and the Lamb.’ The world’s (bride’s) reality is the self-revealing Word of God. Everything everywhere is Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love declaring their own infinitude. The tree of life, which bears her twelve manner of fruits, and whose infinitely individual, in-breathing leaves are for the healing of the nations, is the foursquare matrix of the Word, Christ, Christianity, Science, the source of every man’s boundless life.
“The symbol of this inexhaustible storehouse of Life, Truth, and Love, is the sixteen chapters of Science and Health – the Christian Science textbook, in its matrix structure, voicing THE WORD OF GOD.” (Ibid) As I mentioned in VISION VII, the tree of life is the Christian Science Textbook. Its twelve manner of “Fruitage” is found in the very last chapter with, originally, the 84 testimonies of healing. The pages of the TEXTBOOK are “the leafs for the healing of the nations.”
THE HOLY CITY MATRIX – THE SIXTEEN STARGATES
“Finally, therefore, let us glance at the spiritual correlation, which we now know exists, between the sixteen chapters of the textbook and the sixteen sections of ‘The Apocalypse,’ its own sixteenth chapter. This will sound for us the eighth note of our spiritual octave, the first seven of which the Bible has already fathomed.” (Ibid)
Brown presents the layout matrix structure of the Holy City with the sixteen chapters and the sixteen Stargates. I present also the symbols from Window of the Open Book along with Sharon’s Rose Matrix for Christ and Christmas.
THE SQUARED-CYCLE FOR THE WORD
The Word as the Word – The First Major Stargate is the North Star (Polaris) – The Open Bible Keystone
“Prayer” – First Stargate: the angel with the little book open.
The reason why the Keystone’s BIBLE Book is an open book is because the hub center’s “little book” is open.
“God’s work is done. Infinity is wholly accomplished. Love has already bestowed all good. Mind already knows all – embodies all reality. Desiring to be this work of wisdom is fundamental prayer. Our prayer is to be humanly what we are divinely. The all good, already bestowed, already received and accepted, which we learn about in the first chapter, ‘Prayer,’ is signified by the contents of Science and Health as a whole – that is, by the ‘little book’ which features in the first section of ‘The Apocalypse.’ This book states comprehensively the Word, or Principle, of Christian Science, which we are bidden to assimilate from beginning to end. Unless, in this way, the end is from the beginning, there is no possibility of the idea of God unfolding from beginning to end according to the order of the sixteen chapters.” (p. 368)
This little book open “states comprehensively the Word, or Principle, of Christian Science” which is located (seen) in the hub center of Window of the Open Book. Because SCIENCE AND HEALTH is an open book the seven seals have been broken and the BIBLE is also found to be an open book in its first Keystone Window. We begin in the North (the cardinal point for the Word) with the North Star of Polaris. How do we know we begin here? It is because the Keystone directly below is the Big Dipper Keystone. The Big Dipper is known for pointing directly to the North Star.
The Word as the Christ – The Second Major Stargate is the Daystar – Madonna [Venus] and Child [Sun] Keystone
“Atonement and Eucharist” – Second Stargate: the woman God-crowned.
“Nothing in the Word of God can be taken out of context. Every detail of God’s universe (Word) has ‘part’ with every other detail ‘in the at-one-ment with Truth and Love.’ As taught in the chapter ‘Atonement and Eucharist,’ the individual Jesus proved this universal oneness and wholeness on behalf of all mankind. He illustrated and demonstrated it in his own being through his relationship with his surrounding world. Coming forth from the unity of the Word and returning to this unity, he proved the nothingness of fallen man, or a fragmentary material universe. He said in effect to mankind: ‘Atone for the sin of fragmentation; understand that you are the integral body of Christ, Truth, voicing the divine Word.’ The God-crowned woman in the second section of ‘The Apocalypse’ is [the Madonna Mary Baker Eddy] generic man one with God, voicing [and writing] His Word. He ‘whom God has appointed to voice His Word’ is universal man. [Yet, I must make it clear that the woman God-crowned, Mary Baker Eddy, our Madonna, is His Word, the Bride, and she voiced this Word in the Christian Science Textbook (the Child) that she gave birth to after a period of nine years.] Hence the relationship between Science and Health [the Child] and the woman [the Madonna]. The reality of Science and Health is man in the generic sense, just as the reality of generic man is the divine idea of Science and Health. Parts of God’s universe (Word) do not come together to be joined organically; they are joined already and forever, and therefore are together. This is divine at-one-ment, or marriage.” (Ibid; [My interpolations.])
The Word as Christianity – The Third Major Stargate is Acrux – The Southern Cross of Calvary Keystone
“Marriage” – Third Stargate: the woman in travail.
“We are spiritually fruitful when we work from the standpoint of at-one-ment in the Word. This involves dissolution of the belief that separated fragments join themselves together to form a propagating body. Gently, step by step, we suffer this dissolution [suffer (permit) is] to be so now in order to fulfill all righteousness. In the third section of ‘The Apocalypse’ we, the woman, mankind, are pregnant with, and ‘pained to be delivered’ of, this idea of universal at-one-ment.” (Ibid; emphasis added [My interpolations.])
While the “little book open” is Mary Baker Eddy’s Christ Child (and is open in the Seventh Illustration from Christ and Christmas) notice that the Bible is a closed book. Why is it closed? It is because Mary Baker Eddy’s successor, the girl, as the spiritual idea or Lamb of the Seventh Day of Love, must come to open the true message within Revelation. For it is not really the BIBLE that needs to be unsealed, but it is the book of Revelation that must be unsealed. The time on the clock points us to Revelation 5:1-5 with the Lamb of God. This girl is the Lamb of God; she is the third coming of Christ during the Seventh Day of Love, she is the Seventh Star-Angel who gives birth to the Christian Science BRANCH-Church, the Golden Candlestick Mountain Range Matrix. So it is not surprising that the Seventh Star-Angel is found in the next illustration and tone. Although the Cross Keystone (below) is a ‘t’ cross, it is also sort of an ‘x’ cross. The symbol ‘x’ represents (to me) the city foursquare of divine Science. And yet, this ‘x’ cross is also a symbol of marriage where we have a blade (male) pyramid adjacent to a cup (female) pyramid.
The Word as Science – The Fourth Major Stargate is the Moon – The Golden Shores of Love and the Peaceful Sea of Harmony Keystone
“Christian Science verses Spiritualism” – Fourth Stargate: the great red dragon.
“Spirit does not mix with its opposite matter [there can be no adultery]. Principle does not speak through personal mediums, or segregated individualities, in order to voice its Word. Spirit speaks through its own spiritual idea – that is, through generic man. [God’s angel (divine messenger) is Mary Baker Eddy and she speaks to man.] Man is Spirit self-revealed. There is no outside to Spirit. Spirit is the inseparability of God and man. The belief that Spirit speaks through matter is spiritualism, the doctrine of the great red dragon [of ecclesiastical despotism]. In the universe, or Word, of Spirit everything is in instant communion with everything else. This indivisibility of all things is Life. The dragon (the subject of the fourth section of ‘The Apocalypse’) contends that Spirit requires persons (spirits), electricity [sex, communication between nerve and brain], and matter, in order to communicate itself to man. Spiritualism is based on division, or death. Spiritualism breaks the Ten Commandments by breaking up (in belief) the at-one-ment of God and man.” (p. 369; [My interpolations.])
The red dragon tries to be a medium between the woman and her child, but his attempt fails. Mary Baker Eddy is the woman God-crowned who has her feet upon the moon.
THE SQUARED-CYCLE FOR THE CHRIST
The Christ as the Word – The First Christ Minor Stargate is with The Woman God-crowned Keystone
“Animal Magnetism Unmasked” – Fifth Stargate: the red dragon seeks to devour the child.
“The Latin persona (personare – ‘to sound through’) means ‘a mask.’ Animal magnetism is the supposition that infinite Principle sounds through the mask of finite personality. It would devour the God-idea (the woman’s man child) by breaking it up into fragments – identifying it with persons, followings, factions, and sects. It would draw the third part of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. It would rend man from God, putting itself in priestly guise between them. Evil, personified in the guise of good, is ‘the god of this world.’ To unmask animal magnetism is to reveal the face of God, and the qualities that proceed out of the heart of God. Man is these God-qualities. Sounding through the mask of hypocrisy, animal magnetism deceives humanity regarding the evil thoughts that proceed out of the heart of mortal man. The dragon ‘swollen with sin’ is the mythological opposite of the woman (the world) pregnant with the idea of her own harmony and undividedness. Thus, the ‘works of the flesh’ yield to the ‘fruit of the Spirit’ (Gal 5, S&H 106:20).” (p. 369)
The red dragon, via the hierarchy of religious orders, is depicted as the man in the dark area of the Illustration above. This type of mortal mind tries to break the Arch of the Covenant (the Spirit of the Law) by disobeying or abusing the Ark of the Covenant (the Letter of the Law). But the first (Jesus, who resurrected), second (Mary Baker Eddy who is in the coffin, and animal magnetism objects to being resurrected), and third (the praying woman) advents of the one Christ defeat animal magnetism.
The Christ as the Christ – The Second Minor Stargate for the [Christ] Oil [Christ-Light] Lamp Keystone
“Science, Theology, Medicine” – Sixth Stargate: birth of the man child.
“In the words of Paul, in Galatians, the son of the bondwoman [material organization, a misguided understanding of the Ark of the Covenant with the Letter of the Law] yields to the son of the freewoman [spiritual system of Science, the Arch of the Covenant with the Spirit of the Law]. To un-mask animal magnetism is simultaneously to dis-cover Christian Science. ‘In the year 1866, I discovered the Christ Science…and named my discovery Christian Science,’ writes Mary Baker Eddy at the beginning of the sixth chapter. ‘And she [the woman, generic man, Mary Baker Eddy herself] brought forth a man child…and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne,’ says the sixth section of ‘The Apocalypse.’ Christian Science, the man child, is the divinely integral identity of the human race as a whole. He is born simultaneously of God and man, because God and man are one. He is the revelation of Truth to humanity – the resurrecting ‘leaven’ of divine wholeness raising the whole lump of human consciousness from the dead. He is the rock-like precipitation – the concrete revelation – of the human and divine coincidence, upon which the church (body) of mankind is built. Only the Son of (generic) man is the Son of the living God. The keynote of his activity, is the translation of humanity from physicality to spirituality – from fragmentation to wholeness. Only when Science is the ‘religion of Love’ (S&H 138:14) – the Theos-logos, or God Himself speaking – does it medicine and heal mankind.” (Pages 369 and 370; [My interpolations.])
It seems as if Mr. Brown is speaking about two different things being the man child. The book, as seen in the angel’s hand above (which is closed), is Mary Baker Eddy’s man child, yet her man child successor is Son (Daughter) of generic man (Mary Baker Eddy) is the Son (Daughter) of the living God, she is the second angel whose hands are in prayer. These two Star-Angels are the two women depicted in the previous tone. (You will see them again.) Mary Baker Eddy lists five qualities in her “Glossary” definition of Oil. These five qualities are the five wise virgins Jesus spoke of in his parable.
The Christ as Christianity – The Third Minor Stargate for the Pomegranate Keystone
“Physiology” – Seventh Stargate: journey through the human wilderness.
“The physiological concept of identity (based on the relationship of brain [Adam’s mortal mind] and body [the serpent]) yields to one universal Christ-body [Christ the head and Christianity the body, a.k.a. Christ and Christmas] in the spiritually educational journey of mankind. In the ‘passage from sense to Soul,’ referred to in the seventh section of ‘The Apocalypse,’ and corresponding to the seventh chapter, ‘Physiology,’ humanity is translated from the land of Egypt (house of bondage, physiological body) to the promised land (house of freedom, body of Truth and Love). Humanity’s woes stem from man having supposedly eaten the apple, physiology, from the tree of knowledge, or the serpent’s tree of death. [Notice that Brown uses the word “supposedly” in his sentence. Why does he do this? I believe it is because Adam was still asleep in the “deep sleep” when he “supposedly” ate this forbidden fruit, as the BIBLE never tells us that Adam woke up after being put in the hypnotic trance. Just as the Adam man is depicted being still asleep in the above Illustration.] This [eating the forbidden fruit], in belief, lost him his paradise, his God-given dominion over the body. Reproducing himself physiologically, he transmitted his beliefs to his ensuing generations. In the promised land he regains conscious bodily control – he awakens to the fact in Science that this control was never taken away from him. A build-up of false material knowledge never lost him his at-one-ment with God.” (p. 370; [My interpolations.])
It is thought by some that the pomegranate may have been the forbidden fruit. I do not know that this is true any more than the apple was the forbidden fruit! But let us take a look at the pomegranate. It is the only fruit like it, a symbol of Soul, because it has the seed within the seed. Inside the husk are many fruits. Each fruit covers a seed, or each fruit has its own inner fruit. It is also a fact that the pomegranate is a symbol for a woman, for the Christ, for the female principle, for love, for God’s gifts, it is an attribute of the Virgin Mary and a bursting pomegranate stands for resurrection; Easter; and the fertility of the Word.. In the Rider Tarot card deck, the two cards (which are connected as one Christ womanhood) – II THE HIGH PRIESTESS and III THE EMPRESS both have pomegranate symbols in them. Both women are symbols for the woman God-crowned. So I feel that the pomegranate is a symbol for Mary Baker Eddy (THE EMPRESS [of TRUTH]) and Martha Jones-Smith (THE HIGH [LOVE] PRIESTESS) as the woman God-crowned.
TREATING THE SICK has only one woman in it. She represents Eve as this Christian Science practitioner has a closed TEXTBOOK. Her eyes are also closed. What are her eyes closed to? They are closed to animal magnetism; she is not treating (handling) malicious animal magnetism in her Christian Science Treatment, because she does not understand that Christian Science Treatment is the handling of malicious animal magnetism. Because of this, the Adam man is still asleep in the distorted material world (the giant bed) of error.
The Christ as Science – The Fourth Minor Stargate is for the Concord Grapevine Keystone
“Footsteps of Truth” – Eighth Stargate: deliverance by Michael (Truth) and Gabriel (Love).
“Only that which comes forth from perfection makes the journey to perfection. The ‘human footsteps leading to perfection’ (which the eighth chapter, ‘Footsteps of Truth,’ tells us are indispensable) are the footsteps of divinity appearing humanly and leading humanity back to divinity. In the course of this circular journey ‘the battle between Spirit and flesh is fought and the victory won.’ Only by working from the perfection of Gabriel (Love) has Michael (Truth) the necessary spiritual strength to overthrow the dragon, and so end ‘the conflict between the flesh and Spirit,’ as presented in the eighth section of ‘The Apocalypse.’ ‘These angels deliver us from the depths’ of the dragon’s sea by bringing our identity forth from God.” (Ibid)
Michael and Gabriel are the two angels of CHRISTMAS MORN and the two Sentinel women. With Gabriel’s Love, for her Forever Leader Michael, the Truth about Mary Baker Eddy is being brought out and shown to the world. It is only when this is done that all Christian Scientists will voluntarily follow in Mary Baker Eddy’s “Footsteps of Truth.” They must cast off the shadow of material organization (a black cross) – “Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil” (“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”) and rise up above material organization (the second cross) which is crowned with flowers of Love (“Christian Science, contradicting sense, maketh the valley to bud and blossom as the rose”. When they reach the capstone of Truth, they will reach their golden crown and manifest their dominion over the earth. The second illustration of TRUTH versus ERROR (the illustration for the Word as Science) has a grapevine decoration on the door. I feel that the building in the Illustration represents Mary Baker Eddy’s gift – the Concord Branch Church (her Grapevine) which represents the city foursquare.
THE SQUARED-CYCLE FOR CHRISTIANITY
Christianity as the Word – The Fifth Minor Stargate is for The Lord and Lamb Keystone
“Creation” – Ninth Stargate: dragon cast from heaven to earth.
“Instead of the dragon casting to earth the stars of heaven [the Seven Star-Angels], he is himself cast from heaven to earth. In Science, earth is held in the embrace of heaven, and the two are forever one. For the dragon to be cast to the earth presupposes an outside to heaven. From the point of view of heaven, therefore, the dragon is cast into nothingness. This is ‘the divine method of warfare in Science,’ which Michael and Gabriel, the manhood and womanhood of Truth and Love, wage against the dragon. He is handled generically from the standpoint of [the Lamb’s] divine Science [the city foursquare] before being handled specifically from the standpoint of Christian Science [the city of our God]. That is to say, he is exterminated from heaven before being exterminated from earth. (Note that the term ‘Christian Science’ does not appear in ‘The Apocalypse’ until the next section of the text.) The world-deceiving dragon is ‘the corporeal sense of creation’ (S&H 56:11). We learn this from the chapter ‘Marriage’ (the Word as Christianity), the complement of ‘Creation’ (Christianity as the Word). The false method of creation is, according to the ninth section of ‘The Apocalypse,’ the method used by Adam and Eve (the mortal opposites of Michael and Gabriel) when they eat the fruit of physiological knowledge. Truth creation, the subject of the textbook’s ninth chapter, is creation as stated in the first chapter of Genesis, in which man does not fall from heaven to earth, but remains one with God.” (Pages 370 and 371; [My interpolations.])
Genesis 3 tells us that the serpent is after the woman’s spiritual ideal (her seed); that it bites at the heel of her seed (her progeny – her body of followers, her disciples, and her successor), yet the “woman’s remnant seed” shall step upon the head of the serpent’s seed (disciples of the anti-Christ). In the Illustration above the serpent is behind the woman who is Mary Baker Eddy. Grandmother’s clock has the time of 12:05 on it, so, this points us to Revelation 12:1-5 with the woman God-crowned. It is the exact same position that the Woman God-crowned Keystone is located in Window of the Open Book. In the early editions this Illustration depicts wisps of serpents above the most visible error-serpent, these wisps indicate hidden error-serpent ways in which it influences mankind (as with astrology) and hides from being revealed or uncovered. Notice below how the Lord faces the Woman God-crowned Keystone.
Christianity as the Christ – The Sixth Minor Stargate is for the Palmleaves of Salvation Keystone
“Science of Being” – Tenth Stargate: universal salvation.
“Salvation in Science is now, not going to be. ‘Now is come salvation [SCIENCE AND HEALTH], and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ,’ says the voice from heaven when the dragon has been cast to the earth – when the truth is revealed that man was never cast out of heaven. The teaching of the chapter ‘Science of Being’ is that Mind is all and matter is naught. This is ‘divine metaphysics,’ which alone overcomes ‘physics,’ or the corporeal sense of creation. ‘Semi-metaphysics’ (moralism) plays no part in the divine method of warfare waged by Science, or divine metaphysics. The tenth section of ‘The Apocalypse’ declares accordingly that the rule of our warfare is ‘self-abnegation, by which we lay down all for Truth, or Christ.’ This rule, it says, ‘clearly interprets God as divine Principle, – as Life, represented by the Father; as Truth, represented by the Son; as Love, represented by the Mother.’ In other words, the Science of being, in order to bring salvation to mankind, rules out the mortal sense of creation.” (p. 371; [My interpolation.])
Steven Olderr gives us the symbolic meaning of palms (of the tree) on page 99 of Symbolism A Comprehensive Dictionary: “victory; military victory; fecundity [fruitful in offspring]; Christ’s victory over death; martyrdom to attain heaven, and frequent attribute of Christian martyrs, elevation; exaltation; abundance; joy; prosperity; associated with Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem, Leo [the first living creature for the Word]; attribute of the anima, Asher, the archangel Gabriel. …” [My interpolation.] This being said, the leaves (pages) of Salvation’s TEXTBOOK is what brings victory to the Children of Israel. The word Armageddon means Victory, and all that is destroyed through this Armageddon is the serpent’s lies, mortal minded beliefs – the false acceptance that there is life, truth, intelligence and substance in matter.
Mary Baker Eddy gave us all the capability, through the study of her TEXTBOOK, of being victorious and being able to demonstrate CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING.

“Some Objections Answered” – Eleventh Stargate: the dragon persecutes the woman on earth.
“Only wholeness and consistency (characterizing the true identity of mankind) will succeed in answering the world’s objections to Christian Science. Fragmentation, detached parts, personal factions, misunderstandings, are fundamentally the work of occultism, and are the dragon’s foremost weapons in impeding world salvation. Subjection to the oneness of Principle – fidelity to the Word of God, signified by the wholeness of Science and Health – answers the annals personal, outside objections based on dislocated parts. The word ‘persecute’ is from a root meaning ‘to follow.’ [”sue – to follow after, to come and follow” Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary] Following personality [a board of directors], instead of following (understanding) Principle for oneself, leads to monopoly and occultation, in which one celestial body obscures the light of another. Both the eleventh chapter and (by implication) [‘]The Apocalypse’s[’] eleventh section teach that when ‘a drop of water is one with the ocean,’ and ‘a ray of light one with the sun,’ harmony reigns and disagreements are no more. Everything constituting the divine Word is forever in context with everything else.” (Pages 371 and 372; [My interpolations.])
After December 3, 1910 the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism pretended to follow Mrs. Eddy in a spiritual way, but it defies her Church Manual. And the dragon persecutes her with a false teaching that goes out to the world: to accept Mary Baker Eddy as the second coming of Christ leads to deification of her material persona. It is most interesting that the word successor means “follower.“ Thus, in order for the board of directors of The Mother Church to be Mary Baker Eddy’s successor they must first stop their persecution of her and truly follow her! When they do follow her then they well obey the estoppel clauses she put into the Church Manual and they will lay off material organization.
Christian Scientists, of the world, need to learn a lesson from the story of Joseph. Joseph had a vision dream. In this vision from God he told his brothers (the religious order) that they “were binding sheaves in the field [the Field of workers in the church], and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.” They asked, “Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us?” These ten brothers symbolized the church (or temple). They hated their brother for this dream because they believed it meant that they would idolize him, or have to pay tribute to his persona. But, their idea of bowing down to their younger brother was their misinterpretation of Joseph’s vision dream. Then in another dream Joseph said, “Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.” When he tells this to his father he is rebuked, “Shall I [Jacob, not Israel who is symbolized as the sun] and thy mother [who is symbolized as the moon] and thy [eleven] brethren [who are symbolized by the stars] indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?” Remember, the fourth synonym for God is Principle and always has the sun, moon, and stars as constant symbols.
Joseph was chosen by God to go down into Egypt (material organization) and save the world (what believes in material organization). Yet, Joseph became second unto the King of Egypt in power (this simply means that Joseph became second in power next to Principle), thus the brothers did wind up bowing down to him, not because of his personal sense, but because he was governed by Principle, it was Principle that gave him the power over Egypt (material organized matter).
Joseph’s father, Israel [womanhood], gave him a coat of many colors. These many colors are the colors that I have used to represent the seven synonymous terms for God, the infinite divine calculus, and the four levels of Science in my works. The type of coat that Joseph wore was given to female virgins (found elsewhere in the Bible). This means that the coat was given by womanhood (Israel) to Joseph’s own womanhood. This coat (protection) of many colors was symbolic of the Arch of the Covenant made between God and Noah after the flood – “my bow in the cloud” (Gen 9:13) and “I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud” (Gen 9:14). Now, the words do not mention that this bow is a rainbow, however, we have been taught that this is what the Text means. But the words say “in the cloud” both times! Why? I have actually seen clouds of many colors in the sky. Well, this idea takes us to the angel “clothed with a cloud” in Revelation 10. This Covenant would be fulfilled with the divine messenger (who comes in a cloud) with a rainbow of color upon her brow. Thus, the saga of Joseph, which takes place in the tone of Science, correlates with the Life Mission of Mary Baker Eddy, and we must recognize and accept her as God’s chosen messenger, God’s chosen Leader, of our modern days of Truth and Love. The objections to her as our Forever Leader must end.
Christianity as Science – The Eighth Minor Stargate is for the Big Dipper Keystone
“Christian Science Practice” – Twelfth Stargate: the earth helps the woman.
“Christian Science healing brings regeneration. ‘The prisoner rose up regenerated,’ says this twelfth chapter of the textbook. Regeneration involves spiritual consistency and wholeness of outlook in which subject and object, us and them, are one in identity, and not two. Every part of the healthy Christ-body works in harmony with every other part. This implies love, the essence of Christian Science practice, and the opposite of mental malpractice. In the measure that Principle is practiced, the earth helps the woman instead of objecting to her. [The feminine] Earth swallows up the [masculine] dragon’s flood of mental malpractice in the measure that the spiritual idea is understood through love and regeneration. [This means that we must help Mary Baker Eddy by recognizing and understanding that she is God’s divine messenger of Truth. Then] Mankind (earth) finds itself to be the woman – discovers that it is generic man, the spiritual idea of God – and is no longer in opposition to its own being.
“According to [‘]The Apocalypse’s[’] twelfth section, ‘“Love one another” (I John, iii.23), is the most simple and profound counsel’ of John the Revelator. We read in this same epistle of John: ‘We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren.’ Through the practice of love in Christian Science, the body passes from death to life and is therefore regenerated.” (p. 372; [My interpolations.])
With the twelfth chapter we finally make our third squared-cycle around the Wheel of Prophecy (the Unity Matrix, the Stargate), and the Big Dipper Keystone points upward to the Open Bible Keystone’s guiding North Star for the Word. This means that we are now able to enter into the hub of the Wheel to the Four Sides of SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Reverend Mary Baker G. Eddy.
But, before we enter into the circle’s hub of activity (Science), I will explain to you what these seven Stars mean. If you look closely at the Big Dipper Keystone you will see that they are really Star-Flowers. Each Star-Flower has seven points of light (or seven petals). The seven Star-Flowers are based upon the Star of Bethlehem flower. These flowers have only six petals, but because we are dealing with symbols, Mary Baker Eddy’s Star-Flowers are given seven petals or points of light. I feel that these seven Star-Flowers represent the seven angels presented to us over and over throughout Revelation. They are the seven angels following the Word order that guide the seven Branch-Church Candlesticks.
Mary Baker Eddy calls the Star of Bethlehem by a second name, the Star of Boston. There are three more Star-Flowers found in Mother’s Room.
These three windows represent the three comings of Christ as Life, Truth, and Love. They are the three Star-Angels that have the three woes to materialism in VISION III. STAR OF BETHLEHEM, T’IS THE SAME HAND THAT WRITES THE PAGE, and “SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN” represent the three Days of Life, Truth, and Love. All three window panels are based upon three Illustrations from Christ and Christmas – STAR OF BETHLEHEM, SEEKING AND FINDING, and “SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN [TO COME UNTO ME,” the Christ found within the Christian Science Textbook].

“Teaching Christian Science” – Thirteenth Stargate: new heaven and new earth.
“The thirteenth section of ‘The Apocalypse,’ correlative with the textbook’s thirteenth chapter, opens with the words: ‘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.’ John has learned to ‘love the brethren’ spiritually and scientifically, and his thought, in consequence, has passed ‘from death to life.’ In the words of Jesus he is ‘born again.’ The ‘scientific obstetrics’ (S&H 463) involved in the new birth enable him to teach Christian Science in accordance with the thirteenth chapter. His ‘present possibility’ is absolute Christian Science, in which past, present, and future are one. Heaven and earth are one and indivisible. The new heaven and new earth of Revelation 21:1 are the original heaven and earth of Genesis 1:1. In neither case is there any ‘sea.’ Earth is heaven-born, not sea-born. The mythical concept of ‘sea’ as the ‘mother of all living [Eve],’ with its accompanying sense of time, has passed into oblivion through the operation of divine obstetrics (spiritual education), or the realization that man has his origin in God. Man is indeed the holy foursquare city which comes down from God out of heaven, as presented in the next section of the [sixteenth] chapter.” (p. 372; [My interpolations.])
The word “new” actually means “original” or “origin.”
Are not the three window panels in Mother’s Room representative of Mary Baker Eddy’s “past, present, and future as one” – The STAR OF BETHLEHEM when the nativity of Christ Jesus took place, T’IS THE SAME HAND THAT WRITES THE PAGE when Mary Baker Eddy wrote Science and Health, and SUFFER [PERMIT] THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME her future successor being depicted who will help the woman?

“Recapitulation” (The New Jerusalem artichoke) – Fourteenth Stargate: the city foursquare (X) of divine Science
“Thus the city has heavenly foundations [flower petals]. In the opening section of ‘The Apocalypse,’ the ‘little book’ (Science and Health) likewise has feet, or foundations. These ‘foundations of Truth and Love’ are the two fundamental categories of synonymous terms for God: the seven of Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, Love, as stated in the fourteenth chapter ‘Recapitulation,’ and the four of the Word, Christ, Christianity, Science, which define the four sides of the holy city in the fourteenth section of ‘The Apocalypse.’ [The section we are now in.] One of these feet has dominion over the sea, the other over the earth [bringing back to mind the angel with the “little book open”]. They teach that earth is born of God out of heaven, not out of the dragon’s sea. The system of capitalization in Christian Science denotes man coming forth directly from the Word which is God, thus being the Christ, Christianity, Science. Herein lies the divine method of education, or teaching. ‘Recapitulation’ is the chapter in the textbook on which Mary Baker Eddy based all primary instruction in Christian Science.
“The ‘city foursquare’ in this section of ‘The Apocalypse’ is specifically the city of divine Science. It is the ‘bride’ which the Father gives away for each individual to make his own. In this sense the city of divine Science is, as the text says, ‘our city.’ Man’s timeless present having appeared in the previous section (with its reference to absolute Christian Science) divine Science represents the eternal source and origin of every moment of his being. As cited earlier, the ‘divine Science which ushered Jesus into human presence’ is ‘the spiritual origin of man’ (S&H 325:27). [Thus the idea of baby Jesus being a material manchild disappears. “Yet wherefore signalize the birth of Him ne’er born?”]” (Page 372 and 373; [My interpolations.])

“SUFFER [PERMIT] THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME [THE CHRIST]”
“Genesis” – Fifteenth Stargate: the city of our God (+) of Christian Science
“The ‘city of our God’ (fifteenth section) is specifically the city of Christian Science. Science, bestowed in its oneness and undividedness as divine Science (‘our city’), is the gift to us all of our everlasting individuality as man. Through Christian Science, we give this individuality back where it belongs. We acknowledge that it constitutes the indivisibility of ‘our God.’ ‘To-day and forever’ are the words used to describe the city of Christian Science in this fifteenth section of the text. Involved is the ‘perfectibility of God’s creation.’ ‘Perfectibility’ is ‘the capability of becoming or being made perfect’ (SRD). The forever unfoldment of man’s present perfection as the city (body) of our God solves every human problem. That is to say, nothing can ever enter this body which ‘defileth…or maketh a lie.’
“There is ‘no temple [tempus, time] therein.’ Correspondingly, the seven days of creation which begin the fifteenth chapter, ‘Genesis,’ can ‘never be reckoned according to the calendar of time’ (S&H 520:11). This ‘spiritual, holy habitation,’ in which ‘male and female are no longer two wedded individuals, but…two individual natures in one,’ is quite unlike the world of Adam and Eve as described in the second part of ‘Genesis.’” (p. 373)

“The Apocalypse” – Sixteenth Stargate: Psalm XXIII.
“When the textbook’s sixteen chapters have culminated in ‘The Apocalypse,’ and [‘]The Apocalypse’s[’] sixteen sections have attained their climax in the 23rd Psalm, the point is reached where ‘DIVINE LOVE’ is every man’s ‘shepherd,’ and therefore there is no want. Together, the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures typify the shepherd, pastor, and leader of the universal sheepfold of man. The tone is Science as Science, where, in the survey carried out in this book, the matrix of immortality has unfolded fully for the eighth time. Its resources are unexpendable, inexhaustible, instantly available everywhere at once.
“Substituting “DIVINE LOVE” for ‘the Lord’ in the 23rd Psalm gives, we are told, the ‘incorporeal or spiritual sense of Deity.’ This ‘spiritual sense’ regarding one particular Bible term thereafter applies to the Scriptures as a whole as represented by the ‘Glossary.’
“Let us note carefully the method of capitalization used in this final section of ‘The Apocalypse,’ indicating, as it must, the essential workings of the textbook as a whole, and therefore of Christian Science. In the Bible, man’s ‘shepherd’ is ‘the Lord.’ The ‘Lord’ is ‘Jehovah,’ and Jehovah (as we learn from the previous fifteenth section) is the ‘human sense of Deity,’ which must, ‘through spiritual transfiguration’ yield to the ‘divine sense.’ This transfiguring is represented as having taken place in the sixteenth and last section, in the 23rd Psalm, where the ‘sense’ is ‘DIVINE LOVE.’
“Humanity is accorded its ultimate divinity. The uncapitalized word ‘love’ is fully capitalized as ‘LOVE,’ [In small caps.] and is written ‘LOVE’ only when the larger capital is needed to begin a sentence. Man is found in God. He is possessed of God, and does not possess himself. Man is not God, but God and man are indissolubly one. ‘Our city’ (fourteenth section) is indeed the ‘city of our God’ (fifteenth section). The human is transfigured, and the body (temple) is resurrected. Like Jesus at the transfiguration, and at the resurrection, man, the idea of God , is [the STAR OF BETHLEHEM-BOSTON], was [the SAME HAND THAT WRITE’S THE PAGE], and ever will be [THE LITTLE CHILD] abundantly sustained by the Science of his own being. He is the Word of God declaring itself. He is what I AM.” (Pages 373 and 374; [My interpolations.]
It is the Virgin Mother Consciousness that gives birth to the Christ manchild, was the angel with the little book open, and ever will be the Little Child that opens up the Little Book and mentally digests the Word of God. For both her feet are upon the moon, have dominion over material force and mortal law.
Brown’s final words to this chapter are: “Thus, in the wake of the resurrection, Christ Jesus revealed to the disciples ‘in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.’ Likewise, the Christian Science Textbook unlocks in the Scriptures, from beginning to end, the birthless, deathless truth of man.” (p. 374)
And we must also know that Science and Health reveals “the things concerning” Mary Baker Eddy.
- Gordon Brown is almost willing (at times) to actually recognize Mary Baker Eddy, yet he holds back. No doubt he holds back because he feels that all should be impersonalized in Christian Science. This is true, but without proper gratitude for all that Mary Baker Eddy sacrificed and did for mankind, without proper recognition of her place in Bible prophecy, which she had to hide until it was almost lost, we cannot hope to really unlock the seven seals that error placed upon God’s written Word. We cannot be so handled by homosexuality within the “brotherhood” (Church of Philadelphia) to disavow Mary Baker Eddy as our Forever Leader. Christianity accepts Christ Jesus as their Shepherd and Way Shower, so why are Christian Scientists so afraid to accept Mary Baker Eddy as their Leader? Why are they afraid that their sheaf of wheat will bow down (submit) to the woman that God crowned with a crown of twelve stars?
Let the Revelation be revealed in mankind’s consciousness – that the Revelation presented in the book of Revelation is the Revelation about Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science!
