Prophecy Dreams

Mental Movies from Early March to June 22, 1996

THE BANANA
            I had a mental movie (a dream) where I was feeding my son a banana.  I peeled it open; inside the fruit sprouted another banana.  Then a construction worker came in and took the banana out of my hand and fed it to my mother-in-law.
            To eat a banana by peeling it means that you eat it tail first.  To me this meant that I needed to have demonstrations by depending only upon SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES by Mary Baker Eddy.  The last chapter of this book is “Fruitage” and it is all about healing testimonies that have taken place to those who read the book only.

THE THREE TABERNACLES – Part 4

            Alice Orgain continues on with this chapter, but basically she is finished with her main discussion of the symbols for the three tabernacle churches.

                        “The Third Tabernacle—“Truth,” (S&H 517:9)

            “The Concord Branch Church, as a gift from Mrs. Eddy, illustrates every demand made on Branch Churches as detached from the Mother Vine.  In the front of this Church {on the East Side} is a large round window (similar in shape to the rose windows in The [little] Mother Church) with twelve white pillar divisions encompassing or surrounding a cross and crown as a center.” (p. 526)

            Actually, the window is a Rose Window, and there is also a Rose Window found on the Extension’s South Side (and I am guessing there is one on its North Side).  This means that all three “tabernacles” actually have the Unity Matrix found within them.

THE THREE TABERNACLES – Part 1

Chapter X

            Once more, I would like to quote from Alice Orgain’s book AS IT IS.  {All of my interpolations will be in this type of brackets.}   [All of Orgain’s interpolations will be in these brackets.]  I will capitalize the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.  I will make some grammatical corrections and change spelling mistakes.  I do not agree with everything that Alice Orgain writes on symbolism and Christian Science, and especially when it comes to America’s early 20th century government, but I wish to present it to you as she has, along side my comments.  I also have come to the conclusion that she is not a very great writer, in that she does not know how to get to the point, she seems to get sidetracked (a lot), so I do not think she gets her point across very well at times.  Either she is a bad writer as I think she is or I am just stupid and do not exactly comprehend what she is trying to say.  I really use to think it was me, but after all these years of study and reading her books, I have come to the conclusion that she just is not a great writer.  If you all tend to disagree with me on this point, let me know.  No hurt feelings.
            She gives many references in her book that are not given in her text.  Hopefully you have all the books that you need to look up these statements.  I have not added them to my posts unless I thought it necessary.
            I have included pictures that I have to try and help you understand what she is speaking about.  I do not have many pictures of the Extension, but you can see pictures of the Extension in the book Building of The Mother Church, by Joseph Armstrong and Margaret Williamson, published by the Christian Science Publishing Society, available on line or at Christian Science Reading Rooms.  I could not find pictures of some of the things that Orgain was speaking about in Building of The Mother Church.  I have a few pictures (not good color) of the Concord Branch.  Someone who is a member of the Branch sent me the copies I have about ten years ago.
            Orgain placed the order of the three tabernacles (churches) in a different order from the order in which they were built.  She chose to place them in her order as following a quote by Mary Baker Eddy:  “The ideal man corresponds to creation, to intelligence, and to Truth.” (S&H 517:8-9)  Her order is:  the original Edifice,  the Extension, and the Concord Branch (time wise, Concord was finished being built before the Extension).  She also correlates these three church tabernacles with the experience three disciples had on the Mount of Transfiguration with Jesus, when they also saw Moses and Elias.  “Let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, one for Moses, and one for Elias.” (Matt. 17:4)
            I would like to put these Three Tabernacles in a different order altogether, in order to follow the order of the United Paramount Network, with the symbols of the circle, the triangle, and the square.  So I will begin with the Extension (in Boston) in Part 1, move on to the original Boston Edifice (because its triangular shape embraces the circular Extension, which Alice Orgain totally ignores or is unaware of) in Part 2, and then finally to the Concord Branch Church (square/network shape) in Part 3.

THE FOUR GOSPELS – Part 2b

THE FOUR GOSPELS’ HOLY CITY MATRIX (Part 2b)

Continued from St. Mark – Part 2a

Christ as Christianity (continued)
            In chapter 11 Jesus enters Jerusalem, the city of peace, unto Bethphage (“house of figs; house of unripe figs” [Metaphysical Bible Dictionary]) and Bethany (house of figs; …place of crossings; place where crossings are made; place of fords” [Metaphysical Bible Dictionary]}, at the mount of Olives.
            “Jesus enters Jerusalem. ‘Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord,’ the people shout. But, from the spiritual point of view, their thought is as fruitless and sterile as a barren fig tree.   It is like the commercialism that pollutes the temple. The real house of God, ‘called of all nations the house of prayer,’ is the Christly body of mankind. The temple must therefore be cleansed of its material greed and corruption. So Jesus rides into Jerusalem upon a colt and then cleans out the Temple of the moneychangers. First the Christ is recognized to fulfill Bible prophecy and then the Christ drives out the materially minded from the Christian body.”[1]
            Jesus first cursed the fig tree and the following morning they passed by the same fig tree “dried up from the roots.” Peter brought the tree to the remembrance of the Master. Jesus replied, “Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any; that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:20-25)

The Star of Bethlehem Flower and the Ark Keystone

     On November 11, 2014 I noticed something that I had never seen before, even though it was right there in front of my eyes!  What I realized is that there are flowers in the painted windows of the original Boston Edifice and these flowers represent stars.  On November 12, 2014 I looked up white flowers and found the Star of Bethlehem (Hyacinthaceae Ornithogalum umbellatum) and knew that it was a match to the flowers in the windows, even though they only have six petals while the Star-Flowers in the windows have seven petals for the seven synonymous terms for God:  Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love.  It also occurred to me that these flowers were used in the Christ and Christmas matrix (which I call Sharon’s Rose Matrix) that was made by Ingeborg Tillisch Kelley in 1971 for “The New Story of Christ.”  Seen below is a picture showing part of this matrix.  The twelfth petal has, what I think to be, seven Star of Bethlehem flowers on it (each flower having seven petals).  Kelly says that this flower was “inspired by” a Rose Window in the Concord Branch church that was described in Alice L. Orgain’s pamphlet, The Tree of Life.  The following is from Kelly’s work and ‘quotes’ from Orgain’s work.

            “‘Over twenty-two years ago my book AS IT IS described on page 551 the central medallion placed above the two lateral transept windows in the Concord Branch Church….In the center of the Church medallion appears a large conventional symbol of a flower, conjoined with fruit – the flower symbolizing the prophecies of the Bible and the fruit, their fulfillment, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.’  [I am not sure if the picture that is directly below is the actual flower she is speaking of as it only has four petals.  I found other California Star-flowers but they were white not yellow, as seen below the yellow flower.]

Paul Smillie’s Twenty-fourth Question

     Recently, on a game show, there was a question about Tom Cruise.  The contestants were to name something that was well known about him.  One woman said, “He is a Christian Scientist.”  Well, this was not so.  Her more intelligent family member said, “He is a member of the Church of Scientology.”  This was correct.  It is a sad state of affairs when the world does not know enough about Christian Science to keep anyone from confusing it with the cult (bad use of the word) the Church of Scientology.  What is the difference between the two?  The important difference is that Christian Science defeats animal magnetism while the Church of Scientology employs the use of animal magnetism!  The following excerpt helps us to understand why such a mistake could even take place today.  It is from Paul Smillie’s book (2nd edition) MARY BAKER EDDY The Prophetic and Historical Perspective.  It begins on page 303.  [My comments will be within brackets.]

Linear Progression of Christ and Christmas and Levels of Windows – Pt. 2
