WONDERFUL LESSON

“5/3/1894 (in the handwriting of Laura Sargent – household worker for Mary Baker Eddy) — Mother explained what Jesus meant when he said, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and thy neighbor as thyself; on this hangs all the law.’  In order to love God we must honor and love the Way.  How can we love God unless we love His idea which shows us the way and which is the Way, and in order to honor and love the Way we must have a true sense of the individual through whom the Way has been manifested to us, else we are not keeping the law to love our neighbor as ourself, or doing by our neighbor as we would be done by.  [“His Idea” and “this individual” is Mary Baker Eddy.]  Mother [a title used for Mary Baker Eddy] explained Matthew 15:4 and showed us that the Truth which gives us spiritual birth is our Father and Mother and is what we are to love and honor.  Then she explained the difference between a human sense of love and the spiritual sense.  Our whole salvation rests upon the manner in which we treat her, since the Way comes to us through her and God demands that we love our neighbor by having the spiritual sense of our neighbor, and the spiritual sense of our Teacher and Mother as God’s idea that we must love and honor.  Now when we try to kiss her, and caress her, this is not loving and honoring the Way; it is dishonoring the Way or idea, and thus dishonoring God, and this material sense is what God is rebuking in us; and then when the rebuke comes, we look through the material sense to the person, — which in the spiritual sense is not our Teacher and Mother or the Way at all – and think she is unjust and (does not) love us and blame her for the discord, when all the time it is God rebuking us through the Way, through the idea of God that is expressing God’s condemnation of this false material sense that would forever shut us out of His presence.  Out material sense of Mrs. Eddy is person or a personal sense, which is a dishonor to her and God, for God’s idea of her is the spiritual sense of man; namely, the Way, the Truth, the Life, Christ, the spiritual sense of Love, of good, which is the divine Science of God and man.  Now, when I kiss and embrace the person, I dishonor God and His idea, and this material sense of love which is false, opens the way for another false sense i.e., hate to come in; then we blame the one that rebukes us and hate them, when the spiritual idea or real individual is showing us how much she loves us by showing us the Way, voicing God’s idea, which would give us dominion if we only followed obediently.

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.

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.]

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled (continued)

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled (continued)

            Chapter 16 of Bliss Knapp’s book The Destiny of The Mother Church is titled “Prophecy”.  It begins on page 236 with the picture seen below.  In the top left hand corner, on the Side of Life, there is Jesus and Mary Baker Eddy (there are also other less defined figures in the clouds).  Then with hands in prayer fashion and looking to heaven, more in the center, but near the Side of Light there is the man child.

Bible Prophecy Fulfilled

The Woman

            “The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”  “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” (Matthew 13:33, 35)

            In Bliss Knapp’s book Destiny of The Mother Church he tells us about how the parable of the woman, told to us by Jesus, was kept secret from the foundation of the world, that it “implies that she was no ordinary woman and that her mission must be unique” (Destiny, p. 185).  His twelfth chapter (that seems to be in synch with Revelation’s twelfth chapter) is about Mary Baker Eddy and how she fulfilled Bible prophecy.  And this is the reason why the Board of Directors did not want his book to be read by Christian Scientists in the late 1940’s and why they really did not want to publish it in the early 1990’s.

WHAT CAN THE BIBLE TEACH US?

Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Understand What the BIBLE Really Says?
            How much do they know about BIBLE history and its writing?  Do they even know or care that there are two distinct creation accounts in Genesis?  One is called the Elohistic Document and it is about the spiritual creation done by Elohim-Shaddai, the second is called the Jehovistic Document and it is about an allegorical creation of a material world and man created by the Lord God Jehovah.  Jehovah is their main God, the one that is most important to the Witnesses.  These two documents were not even written down (into the Torah) until the Jews (not the Israelites) were taken into Babylonian captivity.  Any accounts of creation before this time, as well as stories about the Patriarchs, were handed down through verbal story telling.

TAROT CARDS’ SPIRITUAL MEANING

            Pamela Colman Smith was the designing artist of the Rider-Waite Deck Tarot Cards.  According to the box that the cards came in she was “under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite”.  They were with the Order of the Golden Dawn and this particular deck came out in 1910.  “Waite was able to restore in great part the original symbolic meanings that had been lost or changed in the passage of time.  There are those who say that the symbols had been deliberately changed, in some cases to throw the Roman Church off the track and prevent the priests from appropriating the Tarot’s verities for their own purposes.”[1]
            “The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was founded in England in 1886 as a result of the discovery and deciphering of some ancient manuscripts on occult initiation.”[2]  I do not pretend to know what this group really did, or how they thought along spiritual lines, but the word “occult” simply means:  “to hide from sight, conceal”[3].  Somehow Tarot and Qabalistic (also Kabalah or Cabala) Symbolism are tied together, and when we come to the Rider Deck, it may be more closely tied together than the average person realizes.  (And I have serious doubts that people who read the cards for fortune telling have the slightest idea what the Cards are really even presenting symbolically.)  What I mean by this is that there is a definite KEY CARD – the Ten (or X) of Pentacles (or Coins).  On this card are ten pentacle coins and they are placed on the card in order to represent the ten Spheres on the Kabalah Tree of Life.  This KEY CARD is useful in understanding the rest of the deck, for with its use you know what is placed on the card is found to be located for a specific sphere or a particular path of the Tree.  So in order to really understand the symbolism of the Tarot one must become familiar with the Kabalah Tree of Life Matrix.  I believe that this would take many years for someone to accomplish!  I have not really wanted to dedicate myself to this particular study, but I do find it quite interesting.

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.

Scriptural basis:
            Behold I stand at the door, and knock, if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. — Christ Jesus.

CHRISTIANITY AS THE CHRIST – “SCIENCE OF BEING”


CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING

First Edition

Christian Science Healing

Christian Science Healing (with the bearded man and white mantle)

Christ was not crucified — that doom
            Was Jesus’ part;
For Sharon’s rose must bud and bloom
            In human heart.*

Forever present, bounteous, free,
            Christ comes in gloom;
And aye, with grace towards you and me,
            For health makes room.

* “God was manifest in the flesh.” — St. Paul.  {Christ is the manifestation of God.}

Scriptural basis:
            If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin but the Spirit [God-likeness] is life because of righteousness. St. Paul.

            But such as I have, give I thee:  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. — St. Peter.
