            The following excerpt is from the Red Book, compiled by Richard Oaks.  I have made a few changes to the writing.  [All of my comments will be in these types of brackets.]

                                                CHRISTMAS

            Isaiah 9:5 – “For unto us a child is born…”

            Over eighteen centuries ago, the advent of a babe stamped a new impress on history.
            Little dreamed the Emperor, enthroned in his gorgeous palace upon the Capitoline Hill, that a babe slumbering in a manger in the obscure hamlet of Bethlehem, a remote province of Assyria, was to establish an empire before which the power of the Caesars must dwindle into significance.  When the child Jesus was born, all the nations known of that period were in subjection to the government of Rome.  Around the Mediterranean shores were clustered the thronged provinces and majestic cities, that gave Rome the palm of dynasties.  The Atlantic Ocean was an unexplored sea.  The Indies had but a fabulous existence.  Rome was then the world, and Caesar was the governor of Rome.  He could do what he pleased with the property, the liberty and lives of over three hundred millions of people comprising the Roman Empire.
            Such power no mortal ever swayed before; such power no mortal will ever sway again.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS

The following is at the very end of my post – “The Spiritual Idea” – pt. 2.  I wanted to add to it after seeing The Da Vinci Code again (on March 24, 2017).  I have added new material to the post.  I will not go into as great of detail as I could about The Da Vinci Code because I have eleven-part post on it elsewhere called – The Da Vinci Code Uncoded.  (If you have read SPIRITUAL INSIGHTS before April 9, 2017, there have been a few additions made.)

THE WOMAN GOD-CROWNED

Genesis i.5.  And God called the light [to be symbolized by the sun] Day, and the darkness [to be symbolized by the moon] He called Night.  And the evening and the morning were the first day.

“Light preceding the sun
     “All questions as to the divine creation being both spiritual and material are answered in this passage, for though solar beams are not yet included in the record of creation, still there is light.  This light is not from the sun nor from volcanic flames, but it is the revelation of Truth and of spiritual ideas.  This also shows that there is no place where God’s light is not seen, since Truth, Life, and Love fill immensity and are ever-present.  Was not this a revelation instead of a creation?
“Evenings and mornings
     “The successive appearing of God’s ideas is represented as taking place on so many evenings and mornings, — words which indicate, in the absence of solar time, spiritually clearer views of Him, views which are not implied by material darkness and dawn.  Here we have the explanation of another passage of Scripture, that ‘one day is with the Lord as a thousand years.’  The rays of infinite Truth, when gathered into the focus of ideas, bring light instantaneously, whereas a thousand years of human doctrines, hypotheses, and vague conjectures emit no such effulgence.
“Spirit versus [reverses] darkness
     “Did infinite Mind create matter, and call it light?  Spirit is light, and the contradiction of Spirit is matter, darkness, and darkness obscures light.  Material sense is nothing but a supposition of the absence of Spirit.  No solar rays nor planetary revolutions form the day of Spirit.  Immortal Mind makes its own record, but mortal mind, sleep, dreams, sin, disease, and death have no record in the first chapter of Genesis.” (S&H 504:6-505:3)
     It came to me that the “evenings” and the “mornings” were symbolized by the moon and the sun.  I feel that there is a symbolic reason why the moon precedes the sun.  This reason has to do with Venus and the fact that every now and again it transits the sun.  These transits occur in pairs and they take place eight years apart from each other.  The first transit is for the evening (star), the moon, and the second transit is for the morning (star), the sun.  The moon and sun are also thought of as being the two great lights during the Fourth Day of Principle (in Genesis).
     In Revelation 10 there is the angel with the little open book.  Most Christians believe this woman to be a male angel, but the truth is the angel is a female messenger.  She descends from heaven (home, harmony) with a little open book – Science and Health [Salvation] with Key to the Scripture.  This angel is Mary Baker Eddy.  In Christ and Christmas Mary Baker Eddy, as the angel, is depicted during the midnight hour, the evening.  However, the light that shines down upon her is from the evening star (Venus), for she is God’s chosen vessel.

Seeking and Finding (colorized by me)

     In Revelation 12[1] there is the woman God-crowned.  Most Christians believe this woman to be the Virgin Mary or Mary Magdalene.  Yes, the woman is a type of Womanhood, and this Womanhood quality was manifested by the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene, however, this woman is meant as prophecy for the endtime.  Hence the woman God-crowned is really neither the Virgin Mary or the Magdalene.  For this woman God-crowned represents the second coming of Christ, a woman named Mary – Mary Baker Eddy.  What is interesting about this woman is that she has her feet upon the moon, she has dominion over the moon – it has no power over her – she has power over it.  Another important description given to this woman is that she is “clothed with the sun.”

Sun.  The symbol of soul governing man, — of Truth, Life, and Love.” (S&H 595:1)

     The three comings of Christ take place during the Day of Life, the Day of Truth, and the Day of Love.

Woman God-crown Win
     “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 561:6)  God’s Christ is both masculine and feminine; if Christ were not masculine and feminine then Christ would be incomplete – not whole.
     “The woman in the Apocalypse symbolizes generic man, the spiritual idea of God; she illustrates the coincidence of God and man as the divine Principle and divine idea.  The Revelator symbolizes Spirit by the sun.  The spiritual idea is clad with the radiance of spiritual Truth, and matter is put under her feet.  The light portrayed is really neither solar nor lunar, but spiritual Life, which is ‘the light of men.’  In the first chapter of the Fourth Gospel it is written, ‘There was a man sent from God…to bear witness of that Light.’” (S&H 561:23)  And today Martha Jones-Smith says, “There was a woman sent from God…to bear witness of that Light.”

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.
