7 He that overcometh shall inherit
all things; and I will be his God, and
he shall be my son.
10 And he carried me away in the
spirit to a great and high mountain,
and shewed me that great city, the
holy Jerusalem, descending out of
heaven from God,
22 And I saw no temple therein: for
the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb
are the temple of it.

Chapter 16: Apocalypse
Divine Science encompassing the universe and man;...
|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.
For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth, Love, over all, and All.

(Revelation's pure zenith)
This heavenly city, lighted by the Sun of Righteousness, - this
New Jerusalem, this infinite All, which to us seems hidden in the
mist of remoteness, - reached St. John's vision while yet he
tabernacled with mortals.
(The shrine celestial)
There was no temple, - that is, no material structure in which
to worship God, for He must be worshipped in spirit and in love.
The word temple also means body. The Revelator was familiar
with Jesus' use of this word, as when Jesus spoke of his material
body as the temple to be temporarily rebuilt (John ii. 21). What
further indication need we of the real man's incorporeality than
this, that John saw heaven and earth with "no temple [body]
therein"? This kingdom of God "is within you," - is within reach of
man's consciousness here, and the spiritual idea reveals it. In
divine Science, man possesses this recognition of harmony
consciously in proportion to his understanding of God.
