The Prisoner

of 1967

Editor’s note:  I wrote the original draft of The Prisoner of 1967 in 2009, then went over it again in 2015, but I feel that it is time to actually post it (in 2020) because of the conditions around the world right now.

Seven Days – Appendix

            This following is from Max Kappeler’s book Epitomes for the Spiritually Structured Interpretation of the Christian Science Textbook.[1]  Kappeler’s book covers the whole book of SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Mary Baker Eddy.  I wanted to share this with you, in case it may help explain to you, in more detail the tones covering the fifteenth chapter of “Genesis”.  {My interpolations will be in this type of bracket.}  It is all in media layout because I could not present it to you as I wanted to without doing it this way.

Seven Days Part 3

            From this point onward in “Genesis” is Part 3 (Mary Baker Eddy does not assign part numbers to chapter fifteen) or the third section.  The last BIBLE verse of Part 2 was Genesis 4:16 about Cain dwelling in the land of Nod (dreamland).  Nod actually means “ashes” or “to incinerate”.  So to me, the land of Nod could actually mean death.  Is not mortal life said to begin with dust (nothingness)?  Is this birth into ash or dust able to lead us anywhere but to death in dust or ashes?    “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust” are the words used by some priests at funerals.  Because Adam fell asleep and never woke up it is safe to say that his offspring of error, Cain, lives in dreamland (the land of Nod).  I believe the land of Nod means ‘a place or consciousness of sleep or slumber’ because of the phrase “he nodded off”.  It comes from the nod of one’s head.  But, if we take the different meanings of nod and put them together, it could simply mean that the whole belief that you are born into matter and then die out of matter (ashes to ashes, dust to dust) is nothing but a big fat dream!

Seven Days Part 1

After posting WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW ABOUT THE BIBLE? I decided that I would go ahead and post this series with it, as I feel that they go with each other.

 

SEVEN DAYS – “the numerals of infinity”

            And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob by the name of God Almighty; but by My name Jehovah was I not known to them. Exodus.

            All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.  In Him was life; and the life was the light of man. John.

            Why is the first BIBLE verse so important to understanding the book of Genesis?  It is because this verse means that the Patriarchs did not know the Lord God Jehovah of the second creation story (Genesis 2:4 onward) but knew only the God Elohim, the God Almighty of the first creation story (Genesis 1-2:3).  Likewise, the second BIBLE verse is equally important in understanding the difference between the two creation stories because God made all things Spirit (Elohim) not matter (Jehovah).  God is Life itself, and the Life that is God is the Light (Mind) of man – spoken of in the first creation story.
            The BIBLE tells us that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years.  So what does that mean exactly?  It is a clue to one way in which we should examine the Seven Days spoken of in Genesis 1-2:3.  In other words, we do not need to think of them as seven days with twenty-four hours each but we should think of them as a period of seven thousand years, with each day lasting around 1,000 years.  Mary Baker Eddy writes:  “The numerals of infinity, called seven days, can never be reckoned according to the calendar of time.  These days will appear as mortality disappears, and they will reveal eternity, newness of Life, in which all sense of error forever disappears and thought accepts the divine infinite calculus [of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science].” (SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, page 520:10-15)  In other words, it takes about 7,000 years, so it would seem, for mankind to mentally progress through the Seven Days.

WHAT DO WE REALLY KNOW ABOUT THE BIBLE?

            Before I speak about the difference between the two creation accounts I would like to present to you an excerpt from a book called FROM REVELATION TO GENESIS, written by Englishman, W. Gordon Brown.  In these few pages, beginning on page 10, he explains how the BIBLE came to be written.  (I always capitalize the word BIBLE entirely (unless I am quoting another source) because I feel it points to the importance of the masculine BIBLE over all other books, besides its feminine mate, in the world.)  [In this first section my interpolations will be in this type of bracket.]
