Psalm 62:11
11 God hath spoken once; twice have
I heard this; that power belongeth
unto God.

***
Revelation 19:6
6 And I heard as it were the voice
of a great multitude, and as the voice
of many waters, and as the voice of
mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia:
for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.


***
Psalm 139:7-10
7 Whither shall I go from thy
spirit? or whither shall I flee from
thy presence?
8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou
art there: if I make my bed in hell,
behold, thou art there.
9 If I take the wings of the
morning, and dwell in the uttermost
parts of the sea;
10 Even there shall thy hand lead
me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Psalm 147:5
5 Great is our Lord, and of great
power: his understanding is infinite.

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves,

Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

(God's allness learned)
The three great verities of Spirit, omnipotence, omnipresence,
omniscience, - Spirit possessing all power, filling all space,
constituting all Science, - contradict forever the belief that
matter can be actual. These eternal verities reveal primeval
existence as the radiant reality of God's creation, in which all
that He has made is pronounced by His wisdom good.


228:25 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

 

Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth
The rights of woman acknowledged

Christ was not crucified - that doom 
Was Jesus' part; 
For Sharon's rose must bud and bloom 
In human heart. * 
*God was manifest in the Flesh- St.Paul

Enable us to know, -as in heaven, so on earth,- God is omnipotent, supreme.

(Priestly pride humbled)
There is no power apart from God. Omnipotence has all-power,
and to acknowledge any other power is to dishonor God. The humble
Nazarene overthrew the supposition that sin, sickness, and death
have power. He proved them powerless. It should have humbled the
pride of the priests, when they saw the demonstration of
Christianity excel the influence of their dead faith and
ceremonies.

The Way, the Truth, the Life - His word - 
Are here, and now 
Christ's silent healing, heaven heard, 
Crowns the pale brow. 

And forgive us our debts, 
as we forgive our debtors. 

Cardinal point 2 - Column 3 - Extended



(One supremacy)
If what opposes God is real, there must be two powers, and God
is not supreme and infinite. Can Deity be almighty, if another
mighty and self-creative cause exists and sways mankind? Has the
Father "Life in Himself," as the Scriptures say, and, if so, can
Life, or God, dwell in evil and create it? Can matter drive Life,
Spirit, hence, and so defeat omnipotence?

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

Question 3. - Is there more than one God or Principle? 
ADAM = Belief in "original sin," sickness, and death.
+



Omni is adopted from the Latin adjective signifying all. Hence
God combines all-power or potency, all-science or true knowledge,
all-presence. The varied manifestations of Christian Science
indicate Mind, never matter, and have one Principle.
