Saturn 5

by MJSmith

            Saturn 5 is the name of the rocket type used for the moon missions.  The first rocket launched on November 9, 1967 and the last rocket was used on May 15, 1973.  The most popular use of Saturn 5 is the one that launched on July 16, 1969.  Saturn was an old god of mythology; it is also the name of the sixth planet in our solar system.  Being that it is sixth in order means that it symbolically stands for the sixth synonym for God (in the Word and Science order) – Truth.  The number 5 is symbolic for the fifth synonym for God – Life.  So you have Truth and Life together reaching out for the moon.

            Today the Left liberal media press is trying to make mankind’s greatest achievement – reaching the moon and walking upon the moon – as less than great, as these missions were full of racism and prejudice towards women.  Why how dare NASA only have male astronauts back in the 1960’s and 70’s?  The United States of America, according to the Left, is so evil because the country did not allow women to participate in the lunar landings of the 7 Apollo missions!  And all the scientists of importance were also men.  However, it was God who helped these “men” get to the moon, more than once, God chose each individual for their own particular mission, or part that they played in the Apollo Moon Landings.  God chose for the U. S. A. to beat out the Russians as well, because the Russian unmanned spacecraft crash landed on the moon during Apollo 11’s mission.  Why would God have chosen the U. S. A. over Russia?  It is simple – because the United States of America is God’s chosen land, and it is the land that Christian Science was birthed.
            Today there is an attack on the word “man”, it has been going on for a few years now, but it is recently gotten worse.  They (the Left) want to ban words like manhole and many other words that have the word “man” in them.  Yet, they are ignorant of what the word “man” really means!  Man simply means, “mind”!  It has nothing to do sexual identification, even though it has come to specifically mean a masculine person.  Yet the word woman has the word man in it also.  Does this mean that the word woman should also be banned from people speaking it?  If we begin to ban all these words, because the minority of personas looks upon these words as being insulting or racist, then there is no First Amendment anymore, no more freedom of speech.  So, because the word “man” actually means “mind” then what is wrong with the word at all?  Is not mind expressed in the masculine and feminine forms of humans?  There is nothing wrong with this either.
            But I wish to return to the moon mission of 1969.  Do people realize what it even symbolized?  Probably the vast majority of people do not understand what it meant at all, not really.  They may think that they understand, but they do not.
            I turn to Scripture to help explain what the Apollo space missions to the moon were really about.  Revelation 12:1 – “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the son, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.”  Who was the woman God-crowned?  It was Mary Baker Eddy, the Leader, Discoverer, and Founder of Christian Science.  She is the author of SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, the little book open of Revelation 10, so she is also the angel of Revelation 10.
            Did you know that the Saturn 5 rocket lifted off on July 16th?  This date is Mary Baker Eddy’s birthday.  The year 69, when laid upon its side, is the symbol for Cancer – the zodiac sign for July 16th.  Do you know that Mary Baker Eddy’s God-crowned mission took place, as did the launching of Apollo 11, during the Sixth Day of creation – the Sixth Day of Truth?  Christian Science is true medicine; it is metaphysical medicine.  Apollo was the god of medicine.  The number 11 can be looked at as 7 + 4.  This means that the Seven Days of Genesis 1-2:3 (Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love – the seven synonymous terms for God) added to the four of the divine infinite calculus (the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science) add up to 11.
            What are the twelve stars on the woman’s crown symbolic of?  These twelve stars represent the twelve sons of Israel.  Do not the twelve astronauts that walked upon the surface of the moon symbolize the twelve stars, as well as, the twelve sons of Israel?  I believe this to be so.  So, Neil Armstrong is symbolic of Reuben and Buzz Aldrin is symbolic of Simeon.
            The Columbia was the space capsule that Mike Collins was in; it orbited the moon while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed upon the surface of the moon.  The word Columbia means “dove”.  Mary Baker Eddy defined “dove” as:  “A symbol of divine Science; purity and peace; hope and faith.”  Hope and faith are two Second Degree qualities for Life.  The Columbia was the Mother ship (or the Mother Church).  Mike, meaning Michael, is the angel of Truth, the name means, “Who is like God?”  The answer is, “Man [mind] is like [reflects] God [Mind].”
            The Eagle has landed.”  The eagle is an important symbol in our Revelation 12 chapter, as the woman God-crowned is flown into the wilderness with the wings of an eagle.  The eagle is the fourth living creature representing the tone of Science.  Where did the Eagle land?  It landed in the Sea of Tranquility – or rather – it landed in “the grand realization of the Golden Shore of Love and the Peaceful Sea of Harmony”[1] – the fourth Major Stargate in the tone of the Word as divine Science.
            Neil “champion” Armstrong, as Reuben, was the first man to walk upon the moon.  In other words, as generic man, he had his feet upon the moon just as described of the woman in Revelation 12:1.  His famous quote is “One small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.”  The “a” is not often quoted as it seems to have disappeared in the radio transmission.  We can read it then as, “One small step for a mind, one giant leap for mind kind.”
            Edwin “prosperous friend” (Edwin is close to Eddy) Eugene ”born to nobility” Buzz “village in a thicket; tall, military hat made of fur”[2] Aldrin, as Simeon, was the second man to walk upon the moon.  There would be ten men to follow in their footsteps.  July 1969 was symbolic of generic man following in the footsteps of their “Forever Leader” – Mary Baker Eddy – the woman God-crowned.  The twelve sons would manifest dominion over the material world of “dust, decay, and mortal minded beliefs”.
            How can God’s man have dominion over Earth and not have dominion over the moon as well?
            Fifty years have passed since the Saturn 5 rocket launched on Mary Baker Eddy’s birthday.  The launch was as thunder and it caused earthquakes!  “The ‘still, small voice’ of scientific thought reaches over continent and ocean to the globe’s remotest bound.  The inaudible voice of Truth is, to the human mind, ‘as when a lion roareth.’  It is heard in the desert and in dark places of fear.  It arouses the ‘seven thunders’ of evil, and stirs their latent forces to utter the full diapason of secret tones.  Then is the power of Truth demonstrated, — made manifest in the destruction of error.  Then will a voice from harmony cry:  ‘Go and take the little book. …Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.’  Mortals, obey the heavenly evangel.  Take divine Science [the dove].  Read this book from beginning to end.  Study it, ponder it.  It will be indeed sweet at its first taste, when it heals you; but murmur not over Truth, if you find its digestion bitter.  When you approach nearer and nearer to this divine Principle, when you eat the divine body of this Principle, — thus partaking of the nature, or primal elements, of Truth and Love, — do not be surprised nor discontented because you must share the hemlock cup and eat the bitter herbs; for the Israelites of old at the Paschal meal thus prefigured this perilous passage out of bondage into the El Dorado of faith and hope.”[3]
            The news media would like to cause division on this topic of Apollo 11.  Yet, when you think back fifty years to the actual time that Neil and Buzz were actually walking upon the moon, the event was being broadcast all over the world.  People from every nation were able to see the triumph of man over material laws and boundaries or limitations.  This one united viewpoint was most symbolic of generic man – the one man (mind) reflection of divine Mind (God).  It is this unity that the “progressives” (really communists) of today are trying to destroy!
            Today there is further talk of heading back to the moon and even heading for Mars.  The plan is to have at least one female astronaut in the first mission this time around.  Look, I am all for women being part of the space program, but we cannot look back in human history and defile it just because the times were different.  Symbolically I believe that all twelve astronauts that walked upon the moon had to first be all men – for they symbolized the twelve sons of Jacob-Israel.  This is not racist or immoral or wrong.  It is just the way it happened and the way is was.  To doubt that is to doubt God.  God is not just our Father, God is our Mother also, so God is not unfair to women one bit.  God loves the male and female equally and God sent His-Her Christ to mankind as Jesus (during the Fifth Day of Life) and as Mary Baker Eddy (during the Sixth Day of Truth).  Today, during the Seventh Day of Love, generic man (which is both masculine and feminine) will once more go to the moon and walk upon it in order to fulfill Bible prophecy – to where the “human sense of Deity [Jehovah] yields to the divine sense, even as the material sense of personality yields to the incorporeal sense of God and man as the infinite Principle and infinite idea, — as one Father with His universal family, held in the gospel of Love.  The Lamb’s wife presents the unity of male and female as no longer two wedded individuals, but as two individual natures in one; and this compounded spiritual individuality reflects God as Father-Mother, not as a corporeal being.  In this divinely united spiritual consciousness, there is no impediment to eternal bliss, — to the perfectibility of God’s creation.”[4]
            In a world as presented by the Lamb’s wife (Mary Baker Eddy) there is no room for identity politics.  Political correctness is not needed – for there is no need for any further corrections to be made where God’s man (mind reflecting Mind) is perfect – male and female reunited.
