REVELATION – VISION II – LIFE in the tone of SPIRIT
In Mary Baker Eddy’s illustrated poem Christ and Christmas there are two illustrations that I have been trying to differentiate between for quite some time – the fact that one presents the idea of being JOINED with CHRIST and one presents the idea of being UNITED with CHRIST. Just what is the difference? These two illustrations are the second illustration CHRIST HEALING and the ninth illustration CHRISTIAN UNITY (as seen below). Perhaps my answer lies in the seventh illustration SUFFER THE CHILDREN (also seen below) where the nymph is reading Science and Health Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy? Perhaps the answer lies here because the seventh illustration is located on Sharon’s Rose Matrix in the position of the Word as Christianity?
In the manuscript the author, William Cox, never mentions Mother’s Room. I do not know why, as these three windows are of utmost importance. That being said I present to you:
“THE WINDOWS OF THE MOTHER CHURCH
THE FOUR HORSEMEN and the SEVEN SEALS
The first vision of Revelation introduces the four living creatures (the divine infinite calculus) and God’s Lamb (Love) to the reader. The Lamb of God (God’s spiritual idea) is the only one capable of unsealing the seven seals (of error) to open up the Bible (make the Bible spiritually understood). We read about this in the fifth chapter of Revelation. Most Christians believe this Lamb to be Jesus, but this is not the case because this Lamb is not a man. It represents the Christ ideal which manifests God’s Love (God’s Mother Hood). The reason why the Lamb is not Jesus is because his mission came too early. The world was not ready, not mentally prepared, to have the Bible opened up to them. Today we begin to understand that God’s Lamb, this spiritual idea, is a woman. This woman is an angel (divine messenger of God) who descends from heaven during the Sixth Day of Truth. This angel is “clothed with a cloud.” Hence, she is a divine messenger of God. Jesus prophesied the second coming of Christ as descending from heaven in the same manner that he ascended to heaven, upon a cloud – the symbol for a divine messenger. We can then begin to understand that because the angel is “clothed with a cloud” that she is veiled, or it is hard for mankind (including women and children) to see her true identity. Or perhaps, it makes more sense to say that the world’s mental vision about the woman’s place has been clouded or obscured by the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism.
