Are There Sixteen Commandments?

            Is it possible that there are sixteen Commandments instead of ten?  Perhaps the BIBLE’S Ten Commandments represent man’s ascension to heaven (home, harmony), while six other Commandments; or rather Six Tenets represent God’s descending from heaven, as the Bride, or the Word that is God (Rev. 21:10)?  Is it also possible that these Six Tenets provide mankind with true Democracy through self-government?  I feel as if the Ten Commandments were given to Israel when they needed a material church organization with rules, and Moses (and then his successors, the Levite priests) were the Law givers giving the people their shall nots.  In other words, the early Israelite Church was not based upon self-government but had a bunch of rules and regulations to be followed.  The Ten Commandments, however, were set in stone (ten portions of the infinite divine calculus).  They are our Father-Mother God’s Law that we must follow and obey.  But once we have obeyed them and learned from them, was there something else that needed to be given to the people (both Israel and Christian alike)?  Would these Six Tenets be guidelines for mankind’s self-government via Principle (God)?
            It is quite interesting that when we add (addition is a function of the Christ) the Ten Commandments with these Six Tenets that we come up with the number of sixteen.  Sixteen is the same number for the matrix structure for the divine infinite calculus.  There are sixteen main chapters for the Christian Science Textbook – SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Mary Baker Eddy.  Is it possible then that each of these chapters coincides with the Ten Commandments and the Six Tenets provided in SCIENCE AND HEALTH and the Christian Science Church Manual.  I am willing to take a chance and answer, “Yes.”  And I also feel that I must correlate this matrix pattern with WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, a.k.a. the Director’s Window, located in the Edifice of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Massachusetts.  I  feel that God revealed all of this to me on June 17, 2018 so that I can present to you the Bride of the City of our God (Christian Science) as, what I call, sixteen STARGATES.

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.

Submission Is Not LOVE

There were a lot of celebrities at this year’s Democratic Convention.  They sang a song from the 1960’s and after thinking about it I no longer like its message.  The words go, “What the world needs now is love, sweet love.  It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.  What the world needs now is love, sweet love, no not just for some, but for everyone.  Lord, we don’t need another mountain….”  After this I sort of forget the worthless words.

The War

THE WAR BETWEEN THE WOMAN (SPIRIT) AND ANIMAL MAGNETISM (FLESH)

     I am going to compare quotes from “Genesis” (chapter 15) and “The Apocalypse” (chapter 16) from Mary Baker G. Eddy’s Textbook.  I begin with the following quote from Science and Health with Key to the Scripture, page 530:13 to page 532:12. [My interpolations.]

THE FORBIDDEN TREE of Fruit of Knowledge of Good and Evil

THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT WAS KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD MATTER AND EVIL MATTER

            In the allegory about the Lord God Jehovah, Adam man, the serpent, and the woman, who was falsely identified by mortal mind to be Eve, there is the tree of knowledge of good and evil. What is this tree really all about? What is the knowledge that one gains after mentally digesting its poisonous fruit? We are told that this fruit is good and evil so the knowledge must be good and evil. But does this really explain it to us? Some might think good refers to God (Spirit) in this instance (which is what I have thought for quite some time) and some might say evil is the devil (a fallen angel). It certainly sounds like the good fruit is the knowledge of Spirit and the evil fruit is the knowledge of matter.  And I still believe this is correct, however, it is not the pure knowledge of good (God) that the fruit represents.  I feel that it is a false belief that man entertains about good (God, Spirit) and evil (error) coexisting in matter where Spirit is the slave of matter, or where matter seems to reign over Spirit, good.  This forbidden fruit (thought) brought into Adam man’s consciousness the false practice and false beliefs of spiritualism.  And it is this spiritualism, the belief that Spirit and Soul can reside within matter and be controlled by matter that leads us into the belief that matter is both pleasurable (good) and painful (evil).  A section of a book by Bicknell Young makes it clear that the knowledge of good fruit is the belief that matter as being good and pleasurable while the knowledge of evil fruit is the belief that matter is evil and painful. For sure, the knowledge of good as being matter falls way short of the Third Degree’s spiritual understanding!

Graphic Types for Christ and Christmas

     Before beginning with the main body of this text I would like to talk to you about the June 5, 2012 transit of Venus across the sun.  Originally I read that the transit would take place on the 6th, perhaps this was a miscalculation in that 2012 is a leap year?  But it really does not matter what day, however, I do find the 5th interesting symbolically as it takes eight years for Venus to travel the path of the five pointed star.  In addition, the transit is God’s perfect symbol for the woman God-crowned of Revelation 12.  Venus is the Morning Star.  And this Morning Star of the woman God-crowned is most important in relation to Christian Science as symbolized in Mary Baker Eddy’s illustrated poem Christ and Christmas.  What this star stands for is the light (Mind) of divine Science.
