The Ten Birds in THE WAY

     In Rolf A. F. Witzsche’s book Discovering Infinity – Universal Divine Science – Spiritual Pedagogicals, of 2008, he speaks of the ten birds seen in the second Illustration for THE WAY, the eleventh Illustration of Christ and Christmas.

C&C-The Way (C)

     He explains how these birds relate to ten names defined in the “Glossary” in SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES, by Mary Baker Eddy.  I differ with him on one point, however, even though the name is not found in the “Glossary” I feel that all ten birds represent Jacob’s children.  Rolf feels that the white dove (“A symbol of divine Science; purity and peace; hope and faith.” S&H 584:26), which is actually descending downward with an olive branch of peace in its beak, represents Jacob, the father of seven sons (the darker birds).  I see this white dove representing womanhood, as she descends (she is not ascending as some of the male birds are).  Some of the birds, however, are going nowhere.

The Twelve Tribes – Part 3

The Sheaf of Wheat Keystone

THE ELEVENTH SON – CHRISTIANITY AS CHRISTIANITY – JOSEPH (“Some Objections Answered”)
            “JOSEPH, the eleventh son {seven plus four equals eleven, seven synonyms and the four living creatures make up the system of Science}, was Rachel’s first free born son. {Remember the definition of Dinah/vindicate “to set free”?}  Leah (law) was forced to bear her full weight of responsibility before Love could come to fruitage.  {This full weight or responsibility ended with Dinah.}  Rachel named him Joseph, ‘increase, {extension,}’ thus dividing Love’s indivisible conception, which made Joseph, basic Love (foundation) only.  And as there must be both ‘underlying and overyling’ Love, S&H 496:18-19, this demanded another son.  Mrs. Eddy’s definition, S&H 589:19-22, is ‘Christianity’ only, which is the foundation of ‘Science,’ S&H 269:22-25; My 338:23-29.  Jacob, in Gen. 49:22-26, expresses in the most profuse manner Joseph’s high nature, also calling him ‘the shepherd, the stone of Israel.’  Moses’ Song, Deut. 33:13-17, pours out profuse praises for the richness and abundance—‘increase’—of this thought.  I Chron. 5:1-2, indicates that Joseph received the birthright for all the tribes, showing the superior claim of Love over law.  Jacob, in Gen. 49:26, gives him spiritually all that he has in these words:  ‘they shall be on the head of Joseph and on the CROWN of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.’  Joseph was a crowned head in a foreign country; his kingdom was without the ‘Church’ or the narrow strip of land (the symbol of the ‘straight and narrow way’ of thought) set apart from the unfolding of Church.  Joseph’s grave alone rested there more latterly.” (p. 148-149)
            I have Joseph lining up with the Harvested Sheaf of Wheat Keystone.  To me this is interesting when we take on the subject of a crown, which is circular as it is placed upon the round head, and the dream Joseph had about his brothers are around him with sheaves of wheat bowing down to him. (Genesis 37:6-8)  And again his second dream was of the moon, sun, and stars, the stars being his brothers who “made obeisance” to him. (Gen. 37:9)  Both of these dreams were symbols of the Stargate Matrix, yet Joseph (in the first dream) seems to be in the hub, just where I place Dinah.

The Oil Lamp Keystone

THE SIXTH SON – THE CHRIST AS THE CHRIST – NAPHTALI (“Science, Theology, Medicine”)
            “NAPHTALI, Jacob’s sixth son {Truth}, was again Rachel’s child by Bilhah her maid.  This time she wrestles and prevails over law (“My sister”), which is the meaning of Naphtali (wrestling).  {Jacob does not wrestle with the law until after Joseph is born.}  Love must wrestle from under law and embrace it.  Naphtali in Moses’ song must possess the west {Science} and the south {Christianity}.  The south (Christianity), in the city foursquare, is human suffering {permitting error}, ‘with its Southern Cross {of Calvary} in the skies {Levi},’ S&H 575, but the west is the ‘Golden shore of love and the peaceful sea of harmony {Judah},’ S&H 575:32-576:2.  Naphtali must rise out of wrestling (south) and go on to Love (west), Gen. 49:21, Jacob’s blessing—‘a hind let loose’ (I have wrestled with my sister and have prevailed—released [let loose]—my son).  This wrestling out from under law to the light of Love opens a door that can never be shut (Love “goes no more out,” Rev. 3:7-13) and it corresponds to the sixth Church—Philadelphia {Brotherly Love; Spirit}, Rev. 3:6-13.  ‘I have set before thee an open door {a Stargate}, and no man can shut it.’ Verses 11, 12 give promise for ‘overcoming.’” (p. 131-132)
            When Levi permits the error of sexual intercourse it leads to spiritualism (Judah).  But Judah, being rightfully interpreted, is the Word (the Bride) of Science.  This tone shows man that Christian Science reverses spiritualism.  It is through the woman’s leaven that Science, Theology, and Medicine are raised up to the point where the Christ consciousness reflects its own Christhood (its own virginity).  The five wise virgins had oil in their lamps so they were allowed to go into the wedding of the bridegroom Lamb and the Lamb’s bride.
            Orgain says that Naphtali’s struggle “corresponds to Rev. 6:12-17, the opening of the sixth seal and the struggle up {via the woman’s leavened bread} to true manhood {the Christ consciousness} and Womanhood {Christhood} above the animal sense, — the animal, and the male and female being the three steps {“Science, Theology, Medicine”} in the sixth day.  The sun, moon and stars are darkened and the earth quakes.  Mental values are all shaken up and changed, as the material sense of animal and man and woman, Gen. 1:24-27, are successively challenged by spiritual values.  ‘Isms’ and ‘ologies’ are forced to yield to their nothingness; Rev. 3:10 warns the Church of Philadelphia of this struggle.

JUDAS ISCARIOT

            In my past posts I have defined the name Iscariot as meaning “dagger”.  However, there are differing opinions on what the name really means.  So I thought that I would give you all the information that I have combined (as of February 12, 2017) so that you can make your own informative decision about the name’s meaning.  Also, in one of my posts, I wrote that I felt as if Iscariot was a nickname being that his father’s name is Simon.  Thus, Judas should have normally been called Judas bar Simon.  Another author who has written about the definition of Iscariot corroborates the idea of it being a nickname.  Perhaps it was even a descriptive name given to him?  [All of my interpolations will be in these type of brackets.]

“Glossary”

            What follows is an order that Alice Orgain presents in her book AS IT IS, for Mary Baker Eddy’s 17th chapter in SCIENCE AND HEALTH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURE.  I have written it out a little bit different from how she presents it in her book, but the material is all the same.  All the words in bold are the words defined in the “Glossary” by Mary Baker Eddy.  I would also like to give you the definitions after each grouping is given.
            Some of the definitions have positive (spiritual) definitions and negative (material) definitions.  {All of my interpolations will be in these types of brackets.}

“The Spiritual Idea” Part 2

            The following excerpts are from Chapter 1 of AS IT IS, by Alice Orgain (beginning on page 17 and ending on page 90).  In this chapter she explains the difference between “a spiritual idea” and “the spiritual idea.”  She also speaks about Mary Baker Eddy’s illustrated poem Christ and Christmas.  This is a topic I have spoken a great deal upon, but I think that Alice Orgain has some interesting ideas upon the topic and this is the main reason for presenting this chapter to you.  I have made certain corrections in typing mistakes (misspelled words), punctuation, and when a magazine or book is mentioned I have used italics.  I will also capitalize all letters in BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH WITH KEY TO THE SCRIPTURES.  All of the words in capital letters, besides the titles of the BIBLE and SCIENCE AND HEALTH were originally in small caps in the book.  {All of my interpolations will be in grouping brackets.}  [When I am not quoting Orgain’s book my interpolations will be in regular brackets.]

THE TWO BEASTS

          As a Christian Scientist I am not supposed to get involved in politics and publicly support one candidate over another.  Mary Baker Eddy told us not to get involved in politics.  However, if I stand back and do not expose evil then how can it become destroyed?  Believe me, I do not want to get involved, nor do I like getting involved in political matters.  I will not tell you how you should vote, but I do believe that you must know some things before you do vote in this year’s election.  I have procrastinated telling you this information because I feel that I should not get involved in such a matter, but since this is the Ark of Truth, then I suppose that the truth needs to come out.
