Is coronavirus a disease that was bioenginnered? If it was, does it make a difference as to how potent it is?
From this point onward in “Genesis” is Part 3 (Mary Baker Eddy does not assign part numbers to chapter fifteen) or the third section. The last BIBLE verse of Part 2 was Genesis 4:16 about Cain dwelling in the land of Nod (dreamland). Nod actually means “ashes” or “to incinerate”. So to me, the land of Nod could actually mean death. Is not mortal life said to begin with dust (nothingness)? Is this birth into ash or dust able to lead us anywhere but to death in dust or ashes? “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust” are the words used by some priests at funerals. Because Adam fell asleep and never woke up it is safe to say that his offspring of error, Cain, lives in dreamland (the land of Nod). I believe the land of Nod means ‘a place or consciousness of sleep or slumber’ because of the phrase “he nodded off”. It comes from the nod of one’s head. But, if we take the different meanings of nod and put them together, it could simply mean that the whole belief that you are born into matter and then die out of matter (ashes to ashes, dust to dust) is nothing but a big fat dream!
– 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).
Recently mainstream media (the Liberal Press) and the Democrats have been spewing forth propaganda that followers of President Trump are in a cult, that President Trump is a cult leader.
First off I would like to say, that I am willing to accept that I am part of the cult because I understand what the word cult REALLY means! So, let us examine the word cult in order to educate the mainstream media-Liberal Press and Democrats.
The first thing that Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary says about cult is as follows: “[adoration; to cultivate—more at WHEEL].” Adoration has to do with adoring someone or perhaps some god or even the one God. So we could say that religions in general could be considered as cults. What does cultivate mean? “1: to prepare or prepare and use for the raising of crops; specif: to loosen or break up the soil about (growing plants) 2 1: to foster the growth of b: culture 2a c: to improve by labor, care, or study: refine 3: further encourage 4: to seek the society of: make friends with.” Well, can we accept that the followers of President Trump are farmers? Some of them are, for sure, but not all of them. So, let us look to 2a c’s definition. Culture is an improvement of mankind through three things – labor, care, and study. And these things refine (improve, perfect by pruning or polishing; to free from what is coarse, vulgar, or uncouth; to become pure and perfected) mankind. So, again, being part of a cult seems to be a pretty good thing to me!
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.
“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.
I have received comments that I am wrong in stating that Mary Baker Eddy is the Second Coming of Christ, because she stated that Christian Science is the Second Coming of Christ, and that she makes it clear that there is only one Christ. Am I wrong to state that Mary Baker Eddy, instead of Christian Science, is the Second Coming of Christ?
