SPIRIT.

- Section 6 -

 

Ephesians 4:4-6
4 There is one body, and one
Spirit, even as ye are called in one
hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

6 One God and Father of all, who is
above all, and through all, and in
you all.

***
Romans 8:1,2,14
1 THERE is therefore now no
condemnation to them which are in
Christ Jesus, who walk not after the
flesh, but after the Spirit.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life
in Christ Jesus hath made me free
from the law of sin and death.
14 For as many as are led by the
Spirit of God, they are the sons of
God.

***
I Corinthians 2:9-11
9 But as it is written, Eye hath
not seen, nor ear heard, neither have
entered into the heart of man, the
things which God hath prepared for
them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed them unto
us by his Spirit: for the Spirit
searcheth all things, yea, the deep
things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things
of a man, save the spirit of man which
is in him? even so the things of God
knoweth no man, but the Spirit of
God.

***
II Corinthians 3:17
17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and
where the Spirit of the Lord is,
there is liberty.

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.

(Vapor and nothingness)
Man is tributary to God, Spirit, and to nothing else. God's
being is infinity, freedom, harmony, and boundless bliss. "Where
the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." Like the
archpriests of yore, man is free "to enter into the holiest," -
the realm of God.
(The fruit forbidden)
Material sense never helps mortals to understand Spirit, God.


242:6 Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

 

Chapter 8: Footsteps of Truth

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.

(Spiritual baptism)
Denial of the claims of matter is a great step towards the joys of
Spirit, towards human freedom and the final triumph over the body.



78:28 Chapter 4: Christian Science versus Spiritualism

 

Chapter 4: Christian Science versus Spiritualism

What the Beloved knew and taught, 
Science repeats, 
Through understanding, dearly sought, 
With fierce heart-beats;  

Adorable One.

(Spirit intangible)
Spirit blesses man, but man cannot "tell whence it cometh." By
it the sick are healed, the sorrowing are comforted, and the
sinning are reformed. These are the effects of one universal God,
the invisible good dwelling in eternal Science.


43:32 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

In tender mercy, Spirit sped 
A loyal ray 
To rouse the living, wake the dead, 
And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious.

(Divine victory)
Love must triumph over hate. Truth and Life must seal the
victory over error and death, before the thorns can be laid aside
for a crown, the benediction follow, "Well done, good and faithful
servant," and the supremacy of Spirit be demonstrated.
