THE SIXTH BRANCH-CHURCH CANDLESTICK OF SPIRIT (PHILADELPHIA) – STAR-ANGEL OF TRUTH (MARY BAKER EDDY) – CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING (Christ and Christmas)

 

            Now for the sixth candlestick of SPIRIT with its STAR-ANGEL of TRUTH for VISION VI (Rev. 19 and 20)

Revelation-VI-D

First Edition

“Christ was not crucified – that doom
            Was Jesus’ part;
For Sharon’s rose must bud and bloom
            In human heart.*

Forever present, bounteous, free,
            Christ comes in gloom’
And aye, with grace towards you and me,
            For health makes room.

“*‘God was manifest in the flesh.’—St. Paul.” (Christ and Christmas)

            What is Sharon’s rose?  I feel that Sharon’s rose is a reference to the second coming of Christ as Mary Baker Eddy, for she quotes Paul (who was speaking of Christ Jesus for the first coming of Christ during the Fifth Day of Life) in order to define Sharon’s rose.  We could read these same words today as, “God was manifest in the flesh as Mary Baker Eddy for the second coming of Christ during the Sixth Day of Truth.”  But I also think that Sharon’s Rose can be symbolized as the Unity Matrix that utilizes the Illustrations of Mary Baker Eddy’s Christ and Christmas – Sharon’s Rose Matrix.  Sharon’s Rose Matrix was created in the 1970s by Ingebort Tillisch Kelley (although she did not refer to it as Sharon’s rose) for her work on Christ and Christmas that she called “The New Story of Christ”.

SIXTH VISION:  SPIRIT (Chapter 19 – Chapter 20:11-15).  The Word of God is established with the seven triumphs of Truth.  Doorly tells us that this Sixth Vision is about “Armageddon [Victory] and the city foursquare.”[1]

SPIRIT Branch-Church Candlestick (Philadelphia) reflecting TRUTH Star-Angel (Mary Baker Glover Eddy)
            Mary Baker Glover Eddy, the Sixth Star-Angel of Truth, brings about the seven triumphs of Truth.  She is the woman in Christ’s mantle in CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING.  This Sixth Illustration is somewhat like CHRIST HEALING.  However, in the first Illustration for CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING the mantle is dark while in the second Illustration her mantle is white.  “The robes of Spirit are ‘white and glistering,’ like the raiment of Christ.  Even in this world, therefore, ‘let thy garments be always white.’” (S&H 267:25-29)

            The shape of the Star’s Light is triangular, like that of a pyramid – which at its base is foursquare.  This is important to keep in thought as we progress through the Sixth Vision of Revelation.

Revelation 19:1-10 – Protective Introduction

            Praise (Hallelujah – or Alleluia) and the universal recognition that ‘The Lord God omnipotent Reigneth’ together with the worship of God only (the First Commandment being obeyed), brings protection, and the first mention of the marriage of the Lamb and his Bride, the New Jerusalem artichoke.  The following article by Mary Baker Eddy in Miscellany 268:1-269:14 will help us understand true marriage.

[Boston Herald, March 5, 1905]

PREVENTION AND CURE OF DIVORCE
            The nuptial vow should never be annulled so long as the morale of marriage is preserved.  The frequency of divorce shows that the imperative nature of the marriage relation is losing ground, — hence that some fundamental error is engrafted on it.  What is this error?  If the motives of human affection are right, the affections are enduring and achieving.  What God hath joined together, man cannot sunder.
            Divorce and war should be exterminated according to the Principle of law and gospel, — the maintenance of individual rights, the justice of civil codes, and the power of Truth uplifting the motives of men.  Two commandments of the Hebrew Decalogue, “Thou shalt not commit adultery” and “Thou shalt not kill,” obeyed, will eliminate divorce and war.  On what hath not a “Thus saith the Lord,” I am as silent as the dumb centuries without a living Divina.
            This time-world flutters in my thought as an unreal shadow, and I can only solace the sore ills of mankind by a lively battle with “the world, the flesh and the devil,” in which Love is the liberator and gives man the victory over himself.  Truth, canonized by life and love, lays the axe at the root of all evil, lifts the curtain on the Science of being, the Science of wedlock, or living and of loving, and harmoniously ascends the scale of life.  Look high enough, and you see the heart of humanity warming and winning.  Look long enough, and you see male and female one—sex or gender eliminated; you see the designation man meaning woman as well, and you see the whole universe included in one infinite Mind and reflected in the intelligent compound idea, image or likeness, called man, showing forth the infinite divine Principle, Love, called God, — man wedded to the Lamb, pledged to innocence, purity, perfection.  Then shall humanity have learned that “they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:  neither can they die any more:  for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God.”  (Luke 20:35, 36.)  This, therefore, is Christ’s plan of salvation from divorce.

All are but parts of one stupendous whole,
Whose body nature is, and God the Soul.
—POPE

LOVE and MIND (Mother Hood) – Christianity – The Arch of the Covenant is fulfilled
            Revelation 19:1 begins with “an introduction that establishes a protection before the vision is unfolded.  It is a song of praise, and shows that there is but one fact to be acted upon, namely:  the universal recognition and the worship of God only.  This is a response from the angels, the elders, the cherubim and the martyrs as they rejoice over the destruction of carnal mind.”[2]

Verse 1 – “Here in the tone of Love and Mind—Science reflecting Christianity, the fourth dimension—is introduced.  Mrs. Eddy gives one interpretation of Love and Mind when she writes, ‘Love fulfills the law’—law is fundamentally associated with Mind—‘of Christian Science’ (S&H 572:12).  We may also think of it as the divine plan made manifest as metaphysics, metaphysics glorify, the fulfillment of Love and the allness of Mind—there are infinite ways in which we can interpret it.  (See also Mess. ’02, 5:14-24.)”[3]
            Salvation is mentioned in this first Verse of Chapter 19.  The word Salvation means “Science of Health”.  Thus, it is the Sixth Angel that gives SCIENCE AND HEALTH (the “little book open”) to mankind.
            “In the first ten verses of chapter nineteen we find the source of the Hallelujah chorus of ‘Handel’s Messiah.’  In recent years, the word Hallelujah has disappeared from the Psalms in the King James’ translation, and the phrase ‘Praise ye the Lord’ has taken its place.  However, it is still retained in the Revelation.  Breaking down the word into its component parts, it becomes Hail Yah, and expresses a great sense of glorified gratitude.  Thus in these ten verses great joy is expressed for the overthrow of carnal mind; this joy culminates in the powerful and well known phrase, ‘For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.’
            “Because of the complete self-destruction of all that appeared in Vision V, the marriage of the [Christ] Lamb of Vision I and of the [woman God-crowned] bride or Revelation of Vision IV is now able to be announced.  In addition to the pronounced blessing another important point is also stressed in this introduction, namely, that God, and God only, is to be worshipped; not the Lamb [spiritual idea], nor the Bride [the woman who conceives man as the idea of God], nor any angel [messenger from God] voice from the throne [who speaks Principle].  For whereas Jesus prophesied the coming of the Comforter [Mary Baker Eddy calls Christian Science the Comforter], the Bride, the Revelation (John 14), he did not say that the Comforter was to be worshipped.  Thus the protective introduction establishes praise and gratitude in the recognition that the Lord God omnipotent reigneth and He alone is to be worshipped.  ‘For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.’[4][5]
            John hears the triumphant chorus singing a song of praise, joyous in their freedom and salvation and giving glory and honor and power to God.  Because of Mary Baker Eddy’s SCIENCE AND HEALTH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, carnal mind and its immorality and adulterated teachings have been destroyed.  And they praise God again and the thought of gratitude goes on forever and ever.
            Because of “Recapitulation” (the New Jerusalem artichoke) and the infinite divine calculus Christian Scientists are able to recognize that God’s Word is omnipotent, that the Christ is omniscient, that Christianity presents God as one Mind, and that Science is omni-active.  All of this is ever present.

Recapitulation

Verse 4 – “This is the final appearance of the twenty-four elders and the four beasts in the story; just so, ‘Recapitulation’ gives place to ‘Genesis’ and ‘The Apocalypse,’ which constitute the ‘Key to the Scriptures.’”[6]

Verse 5 – “Praise our God”—“The starting point of divine Science is that God, Spirit, is All-in-all, and that there is no other might nor Mind, — that God is Love, and therefore He is divine Principle.” (S&H 275:6-9)
            And the voice that came out of the throne said, “Praise our God, all ye his servants [Christians], and ye that love him, both small and great.”[7]

Verse 6 – “‘Alleluia:  for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth’—again a symbol of Love and Mind.”[8]  “Perfect and infinite Mind enthroned is heaven.” (S&H 266:25-26.)
            And there is a sound of great rejoicing, an expression of vast power and a mighty call to alertness, saying “Alleluia, for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

Verses 7-9 – “‘Come hither!  Arise from your false consciousness into the true sense of Love, and behold the Lamb’s wife—Love wedded to its own spiritual idea [the Lamb].’  Then cometh the marriage feast, for this revelation will destroy forever the physical plagues imposed by material sense.” (S&H 575:1-6; [My interpolation.])
            “The Lamb’s wife presents the unity of male and female as no longer two wedded individuals, but as two individual natures in one; and this compounded spiritual individuality reflects God as Father-Mother, not as a corporeal being.  In this divinely united spiritual consciousness, there is no impediment to eternal bliss, — to the perfectibility of God’s creation.” (S&H 577:4-11.)
            “The marriage of the Lamb symbolizes the finding of idea in its Principle, inseparable from its Principle.  The right idea of manhood and womanhood is climaxed in Chapter 21 [of Revelation] with the vision of the Christ-idea eternally wedded to its Principle.  The marriage supper symbolizes the presentation of the truth about man and woman as one.”[9]
            “Let us be glad and rejoice and give glory to God because the Groom, the Lamb, the Christ [manifested as Jesus], is present, and the wife [manifested as Mary Baker Eddy], New Jerusalem [artichoke], is ready:  both are looking forward to the union and full establishment of at-one-ment.”[10]

Verse 8 – “And to her [Mary Baker Eddy] was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white:  for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.” [My interpolation.]
            The New Jerusalem artichoke, presented first as Science of Man, finally becomes “Recapitulation,” she is arrayed with the right thinking of the saints, the spiritual thinkers, and with innocence and moral purity.  Finally, the New Jerusalem artichoke is shown in all its glory, by the sixth Star-Angel (the sunflower surrounding the little book open) and the seventh Star-Angel (the New Jerusalem artichoke Matrix).

Verse 9 – “And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”  SCIENCE AND HEALTH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES gives us the “true sayings of God.”
            And Jesus said to John, “Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.” (Rev. 19:9)  This includes the five wise virgins (“Oil.  Consecration; charity; gentleness; prayer; heavenly inspiration.” S&H 592:25).  “Blessed are those who realize their oneness with the Christ, the Lamb.”[11]  Blessed are those who spiritually understand their oneness with their own Christ-hood.  “All these are true sayings of God.” (Rev. 19:9)

PRINCIPLE – Christian Science in its own aspect, omni-action

Verse 10 – “Here we have the tone of Principle, — Christian Science in its own aspect, omni-action.”[12]  “In its own aspect” means Christian Science in the tone of (or reflecting itself as) Christian Science.
            “We must give freer breath to thought before calculating the results of an infinite Principle, — the effects of infinite Love, the compass of infinite Life, the power of infinite Truth.  Clothing Deity with personality, we limit the action of God to the finite senses.” (Hea 4:3-8)
            “We must constantly be turning thought to the answer to the question ‘What is God?’ because the only thing that really matters with any of us is what we possess of the Mind of Christ.  (See also Matt. 19:16, 17; My. 225:12-21.)”[13]
            In verse 10 John falls at the feet of Jesus in order to worship him, but Jesus tells John not to do this because he is his “fellowservant.”  The followers of Jesus are to worship God alone, not Jesus, for Jesus is not God.  “These things that you have witnessed are only fulfillments of prophecy.”[14]

“Translator’s note:  That which was begun in the third vision is completed in the fifth.  It is also true that what was started in the second vision, (the establishment of true thinking), is completed in the sixth vision, for we are about to realize the seven triumphs of Truth which establish the Word of God.  The Word of God is triumphant and victorious over all phases of false selfhood, (the four horsemen of vision II).  It is victorious over domination and malpractice, (the beast); and over the counterfeit and manipulation, (the prophet of the beast); and over resistance to the Christ, (by the dragon).  While resistance is under control, the uplifted spiritual thought of the martyrs establishes eternal life and spiritual dominion.  When the Truth of eternal life is recognized and established among all men then the spiritual purification will consume all perversions of Truth and the dragon thought of resistance to the Christ will be entirely consumed.  The purified realization of the dominion of the One establishes the works of the Christ and leaves no place for death or anything associated with it.  The last triumph of truth consumes the belief in death, the last enemy to be destroyed as Paul said.”[15]

The realm of absolute Christian Science – at the point of Christian Science in its own aspect—Principle
            Doorly tells us, “thought rises naturally to absolute Christian Science, to that state of consciousness which Mrs. Eddy calls, from the objective viewpoint, the ‘new heaven’ and the ‘new earth,’ and, from the subjective viewpoint, the ‘city of our God.’[16]  In absolute Christian Science the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science become four cardinal points by which to guide thought intelligently.  At this stage you think, not in terms of Mind, Spirit, Soul, and Principle, but mainly in terms of Life, Truth, and Love, the essential nature of God.  You are still combining the synonymous terms, because you haven’t reached the sense of oneness.  So the Word of God (the first cardinal point) is seen as Life, Truth, and Love; the essential nature of God is viewed from the aspect of Life, or fatherhood.  The Christ (the second cardinal point) is seen as Truth, Life, and Love; the essential nature of God is viewed from the aspect of Truth, or sonship.  Christianity (the third cardinal point) is seen as Life and Love; Truth does not appear specifically in this combination because in Christianity the Christ-idea is made manifest as the compound idea man.  Absolute Christian Science (the fourth cardinal point) is seen as Truth and Love; Life does not appear specifically, because the motherhood of Love is here seen to include the fatherhood of Life.”[17]  The highest definition in “Glossary” is given to “Mother.”  It reads:  “God; divine and eternal Principle; Life, Truth, and Love.” (S&H 592:16-17)
            “As you understand the three terms Life, Truth, and Love in demonstration, you enter the ‘city foursquare.’  That city is the symbol of the understanding of the divine One in a purely subjective way.”[18]  This is of importance, because the angel of Revelation 10 has “her” right foot upon the sea, which has dominion over unconscious error.  “The ‘city foursquare’ has four sides.  As the north, you see one Life, the Word of God; at the east, you see one Truth, Christ; at the south, you see one divine Love, one Christianity; and at the west, you see one divine Principle, Love, one divine Science.  That symbol epitomizes our highest concept of God in a four-dimensional way.  It shows the oneness of God as the one divine Principle, Life, Truth, and Love [Mother].
            “But John doesn’t leave thought at that high pinnacle, because he understood what Mrs. Eddy calls ‘practical, operative Christian Science’ (Mis. 207:5-6).  Having lifted thought to the recognition of divine oneness, he proceeds to translate that recognition down to the point of application to the human.  And so he begins to blend Life, Truth, and Love, which in the ‘city foursquare’ were symbols of one Being, for the purposes of divine computation.  He shows how Life, Truth, and Love reflect each other as the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science, and this blending illustrates the twelve gates or twelve modes of operation, through which thought passes into the ‘city of our God.’”[19]  Each gate, or Stargate (as I call them), is a seven-pointed star in Window of the Open Book (seen above).
            I have assigned four Stars (or bodies) to the four major Stargates (which I got from Mary Baker Eddy, S&H 575:26-576:2).  For the Word I have the North Star, for the Christ, I have the Daystars of Venus (Mother or Madonna) and the Sun (Son), for Christianity I have Acrux, and for Science I have the Moon, as Mary Baker Eddy’s description sort of defines the Sea of Tranquility and another sea (on the Moon).  “At this point thought begins to use the four cardinal points subjectively, in order to demonstrate pure spiritual values, for John has not yet illustrated the application of Truth to the human.  This absolute demonstration takes place through the pure spiritual values of the Word (Life, Truth, and Love), the Christ (Truth, Life, and Love), Christianity (Life and Love), and Science (Truth and Love).  Those are the four cardinal points which guide thought.”[20]  These four cardinal points are also only mentioned while describing the city of our God, on page 566 of S&H.  What is interesting about this is that John only uses the first three living creatures (the outer circle) for Vision VI, as depicted in my Eagle Matrix below.  The Eagle’s right wing is for the Word, its head is for the Christ, and its left wing is for Christianity.  The fourth living creature (the center hub of Science) is not utilized until the beginning of Vision VII.

Revelation eagle 2 (Vision 6)

            Because John sees the necessity of the application of Science to the human, he “once more illustrates the four orders of [the synonyms as] Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love [the Word order]; divine Principle, Life, Truth, Love, Soul, Spirit, and Mind [the Christ order]; Principle, Mind, Soul, Spirit, Life, Truth, and Love [order for Christianity]; Life and Soul, Truth and Spirit, Love and Mind, and Principle [order for Science itself].  Even there he doesn’t stop, but goes on to show how those operate through the days of creation.  And then he ends his whole story by showing the Word as seeking, the Christ as finding, Christianity as using, and Science as being.
            “So Revelation is the most perfect and complete picture—vast in its detail, but beautifully logical in its order.  It tells the story of Science from the point of view of the Word and the Christ.”[21]  In “recapitulation” Mary Baker Eddy “tells the same story from the focal point of the Word, the Christ, and Christianity, and then in ‘The Apocalypse’ in her ‘Key to the Scriptures’ she tells it from all four aspects of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science.”[22]
            In Verses 11-21 “we have the first cardinal point of absolute Christian Science—the Word of Life, Truth, and Love.  (See also S&H 108:19-24 [to semi-colon]; Mis. 2:17-20; My. 117:18-22; Mis. 192:14-21.)”[23]

THE EAGLE’S RIGHT WING

LIFE – Verses 11-14 – First cardinal point of absolute Christian Science the Word of Life, Truth, and Love

1st Triumph of Truth – Revelation 19:11-16 – The Word of God is victorious over all resistance from false selfhood.
Life and Truth (Chapter 19 verses 11-16)
Life – Verses 11-14
            “There are seven triumphs of Truth in this vision—in other words it portrays the complete triumph of Truth.  These triumphs, of course, are all made possible by what has occurred in the preceding visions.  Also Vision VI balances Vision II.
            “You will recall that in Vision II we dealt with four horsemen, the souls of the martyrs (uplifted spiritual thought), human will, or the kings of the earth, the captains, etc.  We can, therefore, expect to find these same allusions presented in Vision VI, in one form or another.
            “Let us first consider the appearance of the one horseman in the passage we have before us.”[24]
            Heaven is opened, the Stargate matrix is opened and the true white horseman who is “Faithful and True” arrives on the scene.  “This horseman appears on a white horse.  Note that there is no mention of a ‘bow’ and consequently this white horse is not the same as the first one in Vision II.”[25]  This is significant to me, and perhaps to me alone, because of my 1996 Vision dream – The Archer Cloud.  At first I did not know that this Archer Cloud symbolized, in part, the constellation of Sagittarius (the Archer), the off-white horseman of Revelation 6.  However, in the dream, even though the Archer Cloud had his arms posed as an archer shooting a bow and arrow, there were no visible bow or arrow in his hands.  So, in truth, this Archer Cloud represented the white horseman of Revelation 19.  The color of the cloud is significant too, as it was white and burgundy.  Burgundy is sort of the color I would eventually use to symbolize the Word in my works.
            Hoyt continues, “More than that, the Greek word is different.  In Vision II the word translated white has the sense of the whiteness of a maggot.  In Vision VI, the Greek word is purity.  This horseman is named FAITHFUL and TRUE, also THE WORD of GOD.  You find yourself reading many familiar phrases which you have already translated such as ‘eyes as a flame of fire,’ and ‘a sharp sword’ and ‘a name written.’  Ask yourself where you first found these phrases and recall what they mean in translation and you will begin to appreciate their full significance in this present connection.
            “Since but one horseman appears in vision VI, it is evident that what he represents, THE WORD of God, is victorious over all four horseman [horsemen] of the second vision, upon which type of beliefs he ‘doth judge and make war.’  This triumph of THE WORD OF GOD is the first triumph of Truth.”[26]
            Since Hoyt did not really tell us where to find the three descriptions above for the white horseman, I figured that I should help you remember, especially if you have not read the previous posts.  The first is “eyes as a flame of fire.”  It was the Son of man (spiritual man) in Revelation 1 who has eyes as a flame of fire (for purification or pure vision or perception – illuminated purified vision and perception) and a sharp sword (coming out of his/her mouth – the declaration of spiritual Truth and the denial of material errors of evil).  In Revelation 2:17 is where we have a name written.  “The early recorders wrote upon stones, and that ancient writing was certainly established, for we find it coming to light even today in archeological work!  The second reward for overcoming sensuality, therefore, is purified establishment (white stone) and a ‘new name’ or a new concept of individuality.  The Greek word here translated ‘name’ is ‘onoma’ meaning character or individuality.  The recognition of a new character is a precious, inspiring realization that the past is gone and the future is new.”[27]
            This white horseman is the second coming of Christ, she is “righteousness” and she “doth judge and make war” upon animal magnetism, the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism of material organization.  This Christ messenger (horseman) practices righteous judgment.  The first triumph of Truth is the higher realization of heaven (the opening of the Stargate matrix).

Verse 11 – Here we have the TRUE WHITE HORSEMAN being presented to us.  This white horseman is our Lone Stranger – Mary Baker Eddy – as the Christ Star-Angel of the Sixth Day.  His (her) name is “Faithful and True”.  (S)He makes war with erring mortal mind.

Verse 12 – “His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.”  The second coming of Christ comes with spiritual illumination and unlimited dominion.  She understands her true Being and no one knows this identity but whomever has spiritual understanding within their conscious thought.
            Her “eyes were as a flame of fire” somewhat like the angel with the little book open whose face is as the sun.  For sure this white horseman’s eyes are like the Son of man who has the seven stars in his hand (in chapter 1).  On her head are many crowns, and she has a name written that no man knew.  Could this unknown name be “Daughter of Jerusalem”?  If not, it could be “Star (Prophet) of Boston.”  Hoyt explains this unknown name in the following manner:  “The Christly character comes with spiritual illumination and unlimited dominion, and understands only itself and no man knows this but he who has it within himself [within one’s own consciousness].”[28]

Verse 13 – “clothed with a vesture dipped in blood”—“The spiritual essence of blood is sacrifice.
            “Jesus taught the way of Life by demonstration, that we may understand how this divine Principle heals the sick, casts out error and triumphs over death.  Jesus presented the ideal of God better than could any man whose origin was less spiritual.  By his obedience to God, he demonstrated more spiritually than all others the Principle of being.” (S&H 25:3 and 13-19)
            He [She] is clothed with a vesture dipped in blood, this “understanding of the Christ is supplied with protection through purification resulting in a higher realization of the Word of God.”[29]  For her name is called The Word of God, for she is the Bride.

Verse 14 – “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.”
            The woman’s army, her true followers are also upon white horses and they are clothed in fine linen that is white and clean.  These loyal Christian Scientists accept and spiritually understand the spiritual teachings of The Word of God.  Because of this they are “equipped with the strength of innocence and purity.”[30]  I feel that the white horses are symbolic of the divine infinite calculus, as the horse has four legs.

Truth – Verses 15 & 16
Verse 15 – “‘a sharp sword’—we read in Hebrews, ‘For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.’  (See also S&H 538:3-10.)”[31]

Verse 15 cont. – “‘he shall rule them [the nations] with a rod of iron {divine Science}’—Mrs. Eddy says, ‘The impersonation of the spiritual idea had a brief history in the earthly life of our Master; but ‘of his kingdom there shall be no end,’ for Christ, God’s idea, will eventually rule all nations and peoples—imperatively, absolutely, finally—with divine Science’ (S&H 565:13-18).”[32]
            From her mouth, which is The Word of God, goes a sharp sword – the declaration of Truth and the denial of error.  This type of Christian Science treatment destroys the materialistic nations, and like the woman’s manchild, she shall rule them with a rod of iron, with divine Science.  The Word of God is unchanging, steadfast, “and brings forth the proofs of the fruitage [demonstration] of”[33] Love.

Verse 16 – “his vesture”—“The vesture of Life is Truth.” (S&H 242:21)  (See also S&H 242:25-26.)

Verse 16 cont. – “KING OF KINGS”—“For this Principle there is no dynasty, no ecclesiastical monopoly.  Its only crowned head is immortal sovereignty.  Its only priest is the spiritualized man.  The Bible declares that all believers are made ‘kings and priests unto God.’” (S&H 141:17-21)  The true white horseman is “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
            “The Christ is supreme and in His presence only one King and Lord is acknowledged.”[34]  There is only One Christ, even though generic man reflects this One Christ.  This Christ upon the white horse has the name KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

LOVE – Chapter 19:17-21
2nd Triumph of Truth – Revelation 19:17-18 – The All-activity of Revelation (flying birds) consume all materiality, human will, (kings of the earth, etc.),
            Verses 17-21 emphasize Love, which exterminates every vestige of error.

Verse 17 – “And I saw an angel standing in the sun”—“Agassiz, through his microscope, saw the sun in an egg at a point of so-called embryonic life.  Because of his more spiritual vision, St. John saw an ‘angel standing in the sun.’  The Revelator beheld the spiritual idea from the mount of vision.  Purity was the symbol of Life and Love.  The Revelator saw also the spiritual ideal as a woman clothed in light, a bride coming down from heaven, wedded to the Lamb of Love.  To John, ‘the bride’ and ‘the Lamb’ represented the correlation of divine Principle and spiritual idea, God and His Christ, bringing harmony to earth.” (S&H 561:5-15)  A friend of mine recently was speaking about this particular Vision.  There is first the marriage of the Lamb and the bride, where they are united, married, as the one – this is the white horseman.  Does not Mary Baker Eddy make it clear that the angel spoken of in Chapter 19 is like the woman God-crowned from Chapter 12?  I feel that this angel is the third coming of Christ, as she too is born in the Sixth Day of Truth, yet her mission takes place in the Seventh Day of Love.
            Hoyt says of Chapter 19:17, 18 – “This is not a pleasant picture, a carniverous feast.  But the flying birds (Greek word for eastern vulture, a type of eagle) are found consuming the flesh of kings, of captains, of mighty men, etc.  We are immediately reminded of what the kings of the earth, the captains, etc. of Vision II refer to, in translation, as well as the flying eagle [Science].  And thus we realize that the second triumph of Truth is that the all-activity of spiritual thinking [in Science] consumes human will, self will, ruthless selfishness.”[35]
            Here is where John compares the angel of Revelation 10 to the woman God-crowned of Revelation 12, for the angel stands in the sun (Verse 17).  She cries out to all the fowls that fly (Christian Scientists) in the midst of heaven (who stand in Principled harmony).  She says, “Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God.” (Verse 17) What is this supper?  I feel that it is the consummation of Truth that comes as a result from reading the little book open.  We must first mentally digest the book like an eagle, as the angel tells us to do, before it is possible to destroy all material belief (before error is eaten up or destroyed by vultures).  “And human will-power, military power, political power, and all sensualism will be annihilated, which is the second triumph of Truth.”[36]
            Doorly explains verse 18 – “that ye may eat the flesh…of all men” – with a quote from Mary Baker Eddy, “When Christian Science has melted away the cloud of false witnesses; and the dews of divine grace, falling upon the blighted flowers of fleeting joys, shall lift every thought-leaflet Spiritward; and ‘Israel after the flesh,’ who partaketh of its own altars, shall be no more, — then, ‘the Israel according to Spirit’ shall fill earth with the divine energies, understanding, and ever-flowing tides of spiritual sensation and consciousness.” (Mis 360:16-24)

3rd Triumph of Truth – Revelation 19:19-21 – The Word of God annihilates domination and malpractice (the beast), manipulation and deception (prophet of the beast), and they are entirely consumed (lake of fire),
            Hoyt says of Chapter 19:19-21 – “The Lake of Fire appears in this section for the first time.  It burns with brimstone or sulphur [sulfur], a consuming gas consuming everything thrown into it as a septic tank acts chemically.  It proves to be the type of belief associated with domination (beast) and manipulation (prophet of the beast) which are now entirely consumed in the struggle with THE WORD OF GOD, in other words they are now thrown into the lake of fire.  Thus we have the third triumph of Truth, in which THE WORD OF GOD is victorious over domination and manipulation which are entirely consumed.”[37]

Verse 19 – Mary Baker Eddy gives “the spiritual import of verse 19 when she writes, ‘Against Love, the dragon warreth not long, for he is killed by the divine Principle’ (S&H 567:19-10).”[38]
            John sees that the beast (malicious malpractice – breaking of God’s By-Laws), and the kings of the earth (human will-power of a certain board of directors), and the Field (some members of The First Church), are gathered together to make war upon the Bride, which is The Word of God, and upon those who accept and understand the second coming of Christ.
            The beast (malpractice) and the prophet of the beast (manipulation and deception) are counterfeits of true protection in Science and all false deceivers (who have the mark of the beast) were entirely consumed (destroyed).

Verse 20 – “The ‘beast’ symbolizes material medica, and the ‘false prophet’ symbolizes false theology.  It is the Word of God which deals with material medica and false theology, and we shall see that it is the Christ which deals with animal magnetism, ‘that old serpent.’”[39]

Verse 21 – “‘slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse’—Mrs. Eddy says, ‘Felt ye the power of the word?’ (Mis. 398:23).”[40]
            And the king of material thinking (human will-power) and all types of thought (the red dragon’s remnant, material seed) that appear to be like human will-power, are destroyed by the declaration of Truth—The Word of God, the Bride’s works.  “This is the third triumph of Truth.  All that is left is the all-activity of good.”[41]  This all-activity is Science and good is Spirit.  (My post SOCIALISM, COMMUNISM, AND CAPITALISM explains why materia medica relates to the beast.)

THE EAGLE’S BALD HEAD and EYE

Second cardinal point of absolute Christian Science – the Christ, or Truth, Life, and Love

Chapter 20: 1-3
4th Triumph of Truth – Revelation 20:1-3 – The recognition of the Christ with dominion over death (angel from heaven with the keys to the abyss) overcomes and binds all resistance to the Christ (resistance, the dragon’s false thinking, is now under control),
            I have symbolized the Eagle’s eye with the three colors I use for Truth, Life, and Love, the eye that is single.  The eye that is single sees only God.  “Truth, Life, and Love are a law of annihilation to everything unlike themselves, because they declare nothing except God.” (S&H 243:27-29; My emphasis.).
            “Beyond the frail premises of human beliefs, above the loosening grasp of creeds, the demonstration of Christian Mind-healing stands a revealed and practical Science.  It is imperious throughout all ages as Christ’s revelation of Truth, of Life, and of Love, which remains inviolate for every man to understand and to practice.” (S&H 98:15-21)  (See also S&H 49:21-25.)

Verse 1 – “‘an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit’—Christ, Truth. ”[42]
            “Truth has furnished the key to the kingdom, and with this key Christian Science has opened the door of the human understanding [When human understanding is based upon mortal minded error it leads to the bottomless pit but when the same human understanding opens up the Christ door to Christian Science this action leads to spiritual understanding.].  None may pick the lock nor enter by some other door.” (S&H 99:9-12; [My interpolation])  (See also S&H 171:4-11.)

Verse 1 cont. – “‘and a great chain in his hand’—‘the chain of scientific being’ (S&H 271:2), the chain of Life.  (See also Mis. 205:22-30.)”[43]
            This is the focal point of VISION VI.  “In this climax section a very important step is taken.  As you read the verses from your Bible, you find the familiar angel from heaven with the key of the abyss (the Christ with dominion over destruction in Vision III).  But we are told that this time he has a great chain in his hand.  And he lays hold on the dragon, binds him, and shuts him in the pit ‘for a thousand years’ – a period in which another triumph of Truth must be established before the dragon belief can be entirely silenced.  However it is of deep importance to know that the Christ with dominion over destructive beliefs can put the resistance under control, giving the next triumph of Truth an opportunity to gain a foothold and take root.”[44]
            John sees the angel come down from heaven, a spiritual messenger sent from God, and this angel has “the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.”  This angel is the second coming of Christ, and she comes from harmony (heaven), the condition of completeness (wholeness) having dominion, like the man of the Sixth Day of Truth in Genesis 1.  This angel has the Key of David (Love), the key to the destruction (abyss) of mortal minded error.  She has the Key to the Scriptures in her hand (ready to use her own writings to prove and demonstrate Christ Science.

LOVE
Verse 2 – “‘bound him a thousand years’—this has nothing to do with time, but refers to the fulfillment of Love, which we experience every time we see some phase of animal magnetism annihilated.  With the Mind of Christ you can compass the millennium in a second.”[45]  “The millennium is a state and stage of mental advancement, going on since ever time was.  Its impetus, accelerated by the advent of Christian Science, is marked, and will increase till all men shall know Him (divine Love) from the least to the greatest, and one God and the brotherhood of man shall be known and acknowledged throughout the earth.” (My 239:27-240:4)
            And she laid hold on the red dragon, the old serpent from the Garden of Eden, which is also the one evil (Devil), and Satan, and she binds him for a thousand years (“until the realization of eternal Life is recognized and established”[46]).  It is the woman who is to step upon the serpent’s head (mental activity) even though this serpent tries to impede womanhood’s spiritual progress throughout the Six Days of Creation.

Verse 3 – “‘and after that he must be loosed a little season’—the ‘old serpent’ seems to be loosed, but only because we don’t know enough of the Mind of Christ.  (See also S&H 96:31-97:4; Ret. 84:1-3.)”[47]
            “Resistance to the Truth is cast down, to be destroyed by the Christ understanding after eternal Life is recognized.  During this time it cannot deceive mankind.  After this it must be loosed [come up from the sea of astrology] for a little time to be completely self-destroyed.  This is the fourth triumph of Truth.”[48]

THE EAGLE’S LEFT WING

Verses 4-15 indicate the third cardinal point of absolute Christian Science—Christianity, or Life and Love.

LIFE
5th Triumph of Truth – Revelation 20:4-6 – (While resistance is under control) uplifted spiritual thought (souls of the martyrs), establishes eternal life and spiritual dominion, destroying all beliefs in degrees of death.
            “And what is this next triumph of Truth which is so necessary before the dragon beliefs can be entirely silenced?  We read of uplifted spiritual thinking (souls of the martyrs) recognized also as the victorious thinking of the spiritual children (they who received not the mark, etc.).  We read that this uplifted spiritual thinking ‘lived and reigned’—in other words, uplifted spiritual thought recognizes infinite life and being, and therefore, has dominion and freedom from belief in death.  ‘This is the first resurrection,’ we are told, to cognize eternal life and being.  And over this thought of life and being, no beliefs of a second death, a third death, or any other death of any sort, can have any power.”[49]
            “‘Work out your own salvation,’ is the demand of Life and Love, for to this end God worketh with you.” (S&H 22:11-12)

Verse 4 – speaks about those who are with Christ, who were martyred and yet “they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
            “And I saw the dominion of those who have uplifted spiritual thought and who recognize eternal life [Life].  They live and reign with Christ, [for they are the Sun of God].”[50]  It is the spiritual seed of the Christ who live and reign with Christ “a thousand years.” (Verse 4)

Verse 5 – “But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished.  This is the first resurrection.”  The realization of eternal Life is the first resurrection.
            “‘A thousand years’[51] is the literary-code way of indicating a complete period in which the recognition of eternal life is so well established that resistance to this truth of being can no longer gain any foothold.  The belief in death, of course, is the most subtle phase of resistance of the dragon beliefs.  When this deep rooted belief is silenced, then ‘all the wind has been taken out of the sails of the dragon beliefs.’  Thus the fifth triumph of Truth is that uplifted spiritual thinking establishes the truth about eternal life and being.”[52]
            Those who are dead in matter do not live again “until the thousand years were finished.  This is the first resurrection.” (Verse 5)  Those who do not recognize that Life is eternal cannot experience Life, they must first accept and understand that Life is eternal, that Life is spiritual not material.

Verse 6 – “‘Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power’”[53]—Jesus’ “three days’ work in the sepulchre set the seal of eternity on time.  He proved Life to be deathless and Love to be the master of hate.” (S&H 44:7-10)  (See also S&H 290:10-15, 593:9-11, 598:23-30.)
            “Blessed and whole is he that experiences the first resurrection – the realization that there is no death, no second, third, or any death, and accepts the understanding of eternal Life.  He shall have spiritual dominion with God and Christ.  As long as this is established in his understanding he shall have the realization of eternal Life, which is the fifth triumph of Truth.”[54]
            In certain teachings among men there are levels of death.  To be honest, I have no idea where this idea came from.  Mary Baker Eddy explains it somewhat like this (these are not her exact words), the first death is the belief that a spiritual being is born into matter and the second death is the believe that the spiritual being must die out of matter in order to be spiritual again.  It seems to me that a belief in a series of these two types of death is where the theory of reincarnation came from.  Jesus proved that death was unreal when he resurrected after the crucifixion.  Mary Baker Eddy’s writings make it clear that death is an illusion.

6th Triumph of Truth – Revelation 20:7-10 – When the truth of eternal Life is recognized and established, then spiritual purification (fire out of heaven) causes (Gog and Magog) all perversions of Truth to be consumed (lake of fire).  These are the last phases of the red dragon’s propaganda about the Sixth angel that try to operate).  Doorly says nothing about these four Verses.

Verse 7 – When the thousand years expire Satan will be loosed out of his prison.

Verse 8 – He will “go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle:  the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.”
            “And when the truth of being has been recognized and established, then the dragon belief tries one last fling.  Gog and Magog first appear in connection with the wilderness wanderings of the Children of Israel.  There the prince Gog of Magog appears with an army surrounding the camp of the Israelites.  But they are driven back.  Ezekiel makes use of this symbolism in his thirty-eighth chapter.  In the Revelation vision before us, Gog and Magog appear as the perversions of the Truth (Ezekiel’s application).  Like an army they surround the camp of the ‘saints.’  The last attempt of the resistant beliefs is to seem to rally numberless perversions of the Truth, ‘as the sand of the sea,’ to attack the children of spiritual victory.  But ‘fire came down from God, out of heaven,’ symbolizing the spiritual purification of thought which completely destroys all suggestions and attacks of the perversions of Truth, as Gog and Magog were destroyed when the children of Israel were aroused to resist the aggressor suggestions.”[55]
            “When eternal Life is established [when Christ Jesus resurrects] then Satan, the dragon thought of resistance to the Truth, shall be loosed for a time.”[56]  The thousand years spoken of here could mean from Jesus’ time to the second coming of Christ with Mary Baker Eddy giving the world Christian Science, what is like one day to God is like a thousand years to man.
            Verse 8 reads:  “Which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle:  the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.”  Prince, or King Gog is a counterfeit of Principle, he rules over the Magog (perversions of Truth that claim to have power). Gog and the Magog will try to deceive and entice all mankind into resisting the Truth by perverting it.

Verse 9 – They go up and compass the camp of the saints.  But fire comes down from heaven, which God sends, and this fire devours evil.
            Verse 9 is about today’s modern world.  For the perversions of Gog and Magog appear to completely surround the beloved city, New Jerusalem.  However, spiritual purification (fire from heaven) will entirely consume all of the perversions of Truth that have been made about Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science.
            And the one evil (devil) that deceived the Christian Scientists is cast into the lake of fire and brimstone (will be entirely consumed).  This is the sixth triumph of Truth.

Verse 10 – The devil is cast into “the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”

LOVE
7th Triumph of Truth – Revelation 20:11-15 – The purified realization of the spiritual dominion of the One (great white throne) establishes (name in book of eternal Life) the works of the Christ and leaves no place for death or anything associated with death (death and hell).  The last triumph of Truth is to consume (lake of fire) the belief in death.  Paul refers to this as the last enemy.
            In this seventh tone there is a great white throne, to match the white horse of the first tone of VISION VI.  There is no reason not to accept that he who sits on this throne is not the white horseman.  “The purified realization of the dominion of the One (great white throne) makes it impossible for there to be any materialistic thinking (earth), or a human sense of heaven any more.  This limited concept of earth and heaven has now disappeared and now a transformed universe new in quality and spiritual in character is revealed.”[57]  I use white to symbolize Principle.  Is not the great white throne the throne of divine Principle, Love?
            Hoyt writes:  “In this last section of the Triumphs of Truth, it is the power of ‘the great white throne, and him that sat on it’ which is operating.  We have had the throne in Vision I, but not the ‘great white throne.’  This indicates a purified realization of dominion, something transcending anything hitherto cognized.  In this great realization, the last enemy, the popular concept called death, is entirely consumed through the vivid imagery, in which John says that ‘death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.’  We already know that the lake of fire is brimstone, or that which consumes everything put into it.  The type of beliefs represented by the beast and the prophet of the beast and the dragon, have already been consumed in the same manner.  Now the false beliefs about death are bound for the same end.  But note that the type of thought represented by those who have been asleep, but now wakened out of their mesmerized state, this type of thought in its new awakened realization of true values, is denoted as established; in other words, the names are written in the book of life.  Only the purified realization of Oneness and the dominion of that thought and understanding can bring the establishment of true values.  This realization is required to overcome and entirely consume the beliefs in death which so harass mankind.”[58]
            “In verses 11-15 the tone of Love predominates, and the resurrection of infinite Life is fulfilled as complete freedom from death and hell.”[59]

Verse 11 – Mary Baker Eddy “gives the spiritual interpretation of verse 11 when she writes, ‘Love is enthroned.  That evil or matter has neither intelligence nor power, is the doctrine of absolute Christian Science, and this is the great truth which strips all disguise from error’ (S&H 454:10-13).”[60]

Verse 12 –“and the books were opened:  and another book was opened, which is the book of life”—are not these books the BIBLE (the books) and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES (another book)?  If so, this means that Mary Baker Eddy (in SEEKING AND FINDING, the third Illustration of Christ and Christmas) opens the BIBLE while Dinah or Martha Jones-Smith (in SUFFER THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME, the seventh Illustration of Christ and Christmas) opens SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.  Both books are opened and no man can close them.
            “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books [of the Bible] were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life [which is the tree of life and it is called SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Mary Baker Eddy]:  and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” (Verse 12; [My interpolations.])  The seven seals are broken (in VISION II, this is why Mary Baker Eddy has an open BIBLE in the third Illustration), so the books are open that reveal God’s “Science, Theology, Medicine.”  This chapter of SCIENCE AND HEALTH reveals God’s Law, which is “for all those whose true-thinking”[61] has been established through Christian Science.  When right thinking is established in man, then man is established and we have our names in the Book of Life.

Verse 13 – “death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them”—“The lust of the flesh and the pride of physical life must be quenched in the divine essence, — that omnipotent Love which annihilates hate, that Life which knows no death.” (Un 39:5-8)
            “There are no longer any hidden erroneous conditions and there is no place for death or anything associated with death.
            “When I say, ‘They were judged every man according to their works,’ do you not realize how often I have hidden some special revelation in a common saying, so our enemies could not understand it?  [This is exactly what Mary Baker Eddy had to do.]  What I want you to know is that as soon as your thinking is rightly established, life will be seen as it really is, where there never is anything to be judged or to die.”[62]

Verse 14 – The last triumph of Truth is that the belief of death and everything associated with it is completely consumed.  When we realize eternal Life then we see that death is an illusion.
            The last triumph of Truth tells us that the belief in death and everything associated with death is entirely consumed, because death is an illusion.  “The realization of eternal Life shows there is no death, no second, third, nor any death.”[63]

Verse 15 – “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” — Any thought that does not accept eternal Life is obscure and is not established therefore it is consumed.  Vision VI is finished.
            In summary, “the complete establishment of The Word of God, the triumphs of Truth are made possible.
            Before I continue on to the final Vision, I would like to write about the Christ and Christmas Illustrations and the open books, closed books, and scrolls.  I will present it in pyramid order.
Revelation C and C books

            In CHRISTMAS MORN we see the two angels.  The angel holding the closed TEXTBOOK is the sixth Star-Angel Mary Baker Eddy (Michael – Truth).  The other angel is the seventh Star-Angel Dinah/Martha Jones-Smith/Little Red Riding Hood (Gabriel – Love).  Both angels have a candlestick flame upon their heads – these represent their Branch-Church Candlesticks of Philadelphia and Laodicea.  Now in regards to the asterisk footnote (above)…could not the women and the angel seen holding their hands as if in prayer be the second feminine representative of Christ during the third advent?

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING symbolizes the fact that the seventh Star-Angel of Love presents the Truth to the Branch-Church Candlestick (remember there really is only one Branch-Church Candlestick not seven, so Mary Baker Eddy’s Branch-Church and Martha Jones-Smith’s Branch-Church are the same Branch-Church).

            In “a. THE WAY” (directly seen above) there is no olive branch of peace in the dove’s beak (divine Science) while in “b. THE WAY” there is an olive branch of peace in the dove’s beak.

THE WAY

THE WAY

…An English definition for beak is “headmaster.”  Is not the headmaster really the Christ?  If this is true, then the dove in “a. THE WAY” is the second coming of Christ.  A man is seen as if he is ascending to heaven.  Many believe this man to be Jesus.  I am not so sure he is Jesus, as he does not resemble the other two Illustrations depicting Jesus in Christ and Christmas.  This man could be generic man.  Looking at the symbolism in this new way I can accept the man as a symbol of Christ Jesus ascending while the second coming of Christ is coming as the dove of divine Science.  Yet, this dove has no olive branch in her beak.  Does this mean that peace does not come until the Seventh Day of Love?

            And finally, about the open and closed books – there are only books in Illustrations 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8.  There is a scroll in Illustrations 9 and 10; these two scrolls represent the Christian Science TEXTBOOK of Truth.  We find the first and only open BIBLE in Illustration 3 – SEEKING AND FINDING.  This means that Mary Baker Eddy was not able to write SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES until after she had opened up (unsealed) the BIBLE, this is depicted by SEEKING AND FINDING, while “SUFFER THE CHILDREN TO COME UNTO ME” depicts a young girl with the little book open while the BIBLE is a closed book to scholastic theology (the old man).

First Edition

…This is the only Illustration where we see an open SCIENCE AND HEALTH.  The angel that I feel represents Mary Baker Eddy in CHRISTMAS MORN holds a closed SCIENCE AND HEALTH.  Does this mean that Mary Baker Eddy, even though she understood her book better than anyone else did, knew that its true matrix structure (the Stargate Matrix) would not be opened up until the Seventh Day of Love by the seventh Star-Angle of Love?
            It was in 2013 when I finally met my twelfth Stargate, my crown was complete, and I felt like it was time for me to stop attending the conventions.  Yet, God had other plans for me, I had to go back in 2014.  Again, after meeting with my thirteenth Stargate I felt like I was done.  But then, my final year was to be 2015 where I would meet three more Stargates thus completing the hub of Science, the four sides of the Science capstone.  Is this the point to the third coming of Christ as Mother Hood; that I had to complete the Stargate Matrix before I could begin writing about Revelation?   Mr. Doorly certainly could not have done it, because he did not understand where the Sixth Vision ends and the Seventh Vision begins!  He was not the seventh Star-Angel of Love (Mary Baker Eddy’s successor), however, he certainly had to complete his work before the seventh Star-Angel could begin her God-crowned mission.  And with this, Vision VII is all about this seventh Star-Angel of Love.  And we begin with the hub of Science itself.  It is as if Vision VI, with our sixth Star-Angel of Truth and the Eagle Matrix is opening up the outer circle-crown of twelve Stargates (the Christ door to heaven) while the final four Stargates are to be opened by the seventh Star-Angel of Love during the Seventh Day of Love.
