Seven Days Part 2

[Truth as Principle – Man’s oneness with God (Principle) is expressed in the wholeness of manhood and womanhood – one-in-all and all-in-one – and Soul as the Christ as the Christ within the Word as Christianity]
Genesis 1. 27.  So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him, male and female created He them.

Ideal man and woman
            To emphasize this momentous thought, it is repeated that God made man in His own image, to reflect the divine Spirit.  It follows that man is a generic term.  Masculine, feminine, and neuter genders are human concepts.  In one of the ancient languages the word for man is used also as the synonym of mind.  This definition has been weakened by anthropomorphism, or a humanization of Deity.  The word anthropomorphic, in such a phrase as “an anthropomorphic God,” is derived from two Greek words, signifying man and form, and may be defined as a mortally mental attempt to reduce Deity to corporeality.  The life-giving quality of Mind is Spirit, not matter.  The ideal man corresponds to creation, to intelligence, and to Truth.  The ideal woman corresponds to Life and to Love.  In divine Science, we have not as much authority for considering God masculine, as we have for considering Him feminine, for Love imparts the clearest idea of Deity.
            [Think about it, if man is actually a synonym of mind then why are today’s Left (those who claim to be feminists or on the feminists’ side?) so against the word?  Why do they think it is a horrible word and why do they sick the thought police on it and try to change words like manhole?  I will go so far in saying that mentality could mean “mantality”.  The reason why the Left is against the word has nothing to do with sexual inequality and everything to do with the anti-Christ.

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.]

FORTY GENERATIONS

– or – SEVENTY-SEVEN GENERATIONS?

            In the Book of St. Matthew (which is in the tone of the Word) chapter one presents forty generations from Abraham to Jesus.  This number forty symbolizes the generation of man’s spiritual birth, because a woman is pregnant for forty weeks.  In Matthew the lineage goes only back to Abraham, the first father of the Israelites (in the Third Day of Soul).  The Lord God Jehovah is not the God Almighty that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew.  Yet in the Book of St. Luke (which is in the tone of Christianity) Jesus lineage goes all the way back to Adam (a man of sin) being “the son of God.”  I believe that there is a specific reason for this.  I believe that the Word begins with a spiritual type of manhood (Jesus), while Christianity seems to lead us back to the pure idea or our true being – God.  When this happens we find that we are home in heaven.  Yet perhaps a Bible verse from John 16:28 helps explain the difference between the two lineages of Jesus.  Matthew (the Word) – “I came forth from the Father,” Mark (the Christ) – “and am come into the world again, I leave the world,” Luke (Christianity) – “and go to the Father”.  Mary Baker Eddy tells us, “Science unfolds the eternal verity, that man is the spiritual, eternal reflection of God” (S&H 296:2).

Government Shutdown and Border Problems Pt. 2

FIVE BOOKS
            After posting about Nehemiah’s wall on January 30, 2019 (explaining why there needs to be a wall or fence on the southern border of the United States of America), I decided I needed to delve further into the topic.  So I turned to W. Gordon Brown’s book FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION.  I found that I could not just present Nehemiah to you because he is part of a group of books that must be seen as a whole, or a compound idea.  I will give you a basic overview of what Brown presents in this section from his book.  I realize that I jumped the gun in presenting Nehemiah first.  And so, we must first understand what took place before Nehemiah because Ezra must take place first – even though what takes place in Ezra and Nehemiah are pretty much simultaneous.  But both books present different things being rebuilt – parts of Jerusalem.  I am presenting these five books to you because of what is going on in the United States of America, and how its heads of government are fighting on one issue – the wall.

Starflower of Boston – Part 1

            Helen Wright’s book STAR OF BOSTON The Life of Mary Baker Eddy has three sections to it.  Part I is about Mary Baker Eddy fulfilling Isaiah 54, Part II is Atonement and Eucharist: the story of the Second Coming of the Christ as Revelation, and Part III is about Christ and Christmas, an illustrated poem by Mary Baker Eddy.  And finally there is a Conclusion.
            What I would like to talk to you about is Part III of her book.  Helen uses quote excerpts from the writings of Alice Orgain and a manuscript attributed (but never confirmed) to Judge Septimus J. Hanna.  When she quotes from this manuscript she places a question mark after Hanna’s name.  She also gives us some ideas on the topic by John Pawlik, someone she knew.  I have studied Christ and Christmas for years, and am not sure that I agree with everything that Alice Orgain writes upon the topic, but I am open to changing my mind.  And I think that I have done so on Illustration 8 – TREATING THE SICK.  It is explained in Helen’s book that every illustration points to a particular time in Mary Baker Eddy’s life, which is probably so, and so I will try and bring out that point to you, as I do not know if I have succeeded in my past posts on the topic in this respect (or on this topic).  Part 1 is about how Christ and Christmas correlates with the symbols in The First Church of Christ Scientist in Boston.  Parts 2 and 3 have to do with Sharon’s Rose Matrix and its alignment with WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, a Rose Window on the South side of the little edifice in Boston.
            Helen did not include the material written by Doris Grekel (from one of her biographies on Mary Baker Eddy and in some of her pamphlets she used to publish).  This could be because Helen did not have room for everything out there written on Christ and Christmas, for her book is only 257 pages long and Alice Orgain’s two books are WAY bigger!
            I do not know John Pawlik, so I will leave him out of my discussion, because what I want to explain, at this point, is the big difference between the Orgain, Hanna (?), and Grekel ideas on Christ and Christmas.

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.

THE WAY

Second Edition

First Edition

            I wrote this post on Easter weekend (2018).  The first part I wrote on Saturday morning, the second on Easter morning.  After writing the first section I was watching a recording of Watter’s World with Jessie Watters.  There was an interview segment where Jessie went out on the street to ask people questions about Easter.  He asked a man what happened on Easter.  He said that Jesus resurrected a second time.  Of course, everybody who saw the segment probably laughed at this man’s response, but it got me to thinking.  Did Jesus need to resurrect a second time?  And it came to me, “Why, yes, he did.  Jesus was resurrected, and possibly ascended as well, two times in human history.”  And I believe that the Illustration seen above could possibly represent Jesus’ second resurrection/ascension.

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.

AS IT IS “Teaching must always be by symbols.”

CHAPTER XIII

            Chapter 8, from Alice Orgain’s book AS IT IS, is about symbols, something that I really like!  However, I am not sure I always agree with this author upon the topic of symbols, or what they mean.  And I find that she has a low understanding of symbology.  {Any interpolations I make will be in this type of bracket.}  I will make changes to any spelling mistakes I find, and add italics where necessary, etc.
