ADAM AND FALLEN MAN.

- Section 5 -

 

Genesis 1:1,26,27
1 In the beginning God created the
heaven and the earth.
26 #And God said, Let us make man
in our image, after our likeness: and
let them have dominion over the fish
of the sea, and over the fowl of the
air, and over the cattle, and over
all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the
earth.
27 So God created man in his own
image, in the image of God created he
him; male and female created he them.


***
Matthew 2:1,6
1 Now when Jesus was born in
Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of
Herod the king, behold, there came
wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
6 And thou Bethlehem, in the land
of Juda, art not the least among the
princes of Juda: for out of thee
shall come a Governor, that shall
rule my people Israel.

***
Isaiah 9:6
6 For unto us a child is born, unto
us a son is given: and the government
shall be upon his shoulder: and his
name shall be called Wonderful,
Counsellor, The mighty God, The
everlasting Father, The Prince of
Peace.

***
Luke 1:68,69,79
68 Blessed be the Lord God of
Israel; for he hath visited and
redeemed his people,
69 And hath raised up an horn of
salvation for us in the house of his
servant David;
79 To give light to them that sit
in darkness and in the shadow of
death, to guide our feet into the way
of peace.

***
Hebrews 3:1,2,14
1 Wherefore, holy brethren,
partakers of the heavenly calling,
consider the Apostle and High Priest
of our profession, Christ Jesus;
2 Who was faithful to him that
appointed him, as also Moses was
faithful in all his house.
14 For we are made partakers of
Christ, if we hold the beginning of
our confidence stedfast unto the end;


***
I Peter 1:23
23 Being born again, not of
corruptible seed, but of
incorruptible, by the word of God,
which liveth and abideth for ever.


502:24 Chapter 15: Genesis

 

Chapter 15: Genesis
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

The Way

No blight, no broken wing, no moan, 
Truth's fane can dim; 
Eternal swells Christ's music-tone, 
In heaven's hymn. 

For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.

(Ideas and identities)
The infinite has no beginning. This word beginning is
employed to signify the only, - that is, the eternal verity and
unity of God and man, including the universe. The creative
Principle - Life, Truth, and Love - is God. The universe reflects
God. There is but one creator and one creation. This creation
consists of the unfolding of spiritual ideas and their identities,
which are embraced in the infinite Mind and forever reflected.
These ideas range from the infinitesimal to infinity, and the
highest ideas are the sons and daughters of God.


559:10-19 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse

 

Chapter 16: Apocalypse
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...  

(Beyond  "The Way")

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my
works unto the end, to him will I give
power over the nations:
And I will give him the MORNING STAR. 
-CHRIST JESUS-

For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

(Truth's volume)
The inaudible voice of Truth is, to the human mind, "as when a
lion roareth." It is heard in the desert and in dark places of
fear. It arouses the "seven thunders" of evil, and stirs their
latent forces to utter the full diapason of secret tones. Then is
the power of Truth demonstrated, - made manifest in the
destruction of error. Then will a voice from harmony cry: "Go and
take the little book. . . . Take it, and eat it up; and it shall
make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as
honey."

(Scriptural perception)
Christian Science separates error from truth, and breathes
through the sacred pages the spiritual sense of life, substance,
and intelligence. In this Science, we discover man in the image
and likeness of God. We see that man has never lost his spiritual
estate and his eternal harmony.
