Zechariah 4:1-3,11,12,14
1 And the angel that talked with
me came again, and waked me, as a man
that is wakened out of his sleep,
2 And said unto me, What seest
thou? And I said, I have looked, and
behold a candlestick all of gold,
with a bowl upon the top of it, and
his seven lamps thereon, and seven
pipes to the seven lamps, which are
upon the top thereof:
3 And two olive trees by it, one
upon the right side of the bowl, and
the other upon the left side thereof.

11 #Then answered I, and said unto
him, What are these two olive trees
upon the right side of the
candlestick and upon the left side
12 And I answered again, and said
unto him, What be these two olive
branches which through the two golden
pipes empty the golden oil out of
14 Then said he, These are the two
anointed ones, that stand by the Lord
of the whole earth.

Revelation 11:3,4
3 And I will give power unto my two
witnesses, and they shall prophesy a
thousand two hundred and threescore
days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees,
and the two candlesticks standing
before the God of the earth.

562:3-7(to .) 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. 

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

(Spiritual idea revealed)
As Elias presented the idea of the fatherhood of God, which
Jesus afterwards manifested, so the Revelator completed this figure
with woman, typifying the spiritual idea of God's motherhood.

565:13-22 Chapter 16: The Apocalypse

(The conflict with purity)
The impersonation of the spiritual idea had a brief history in
the earthly life of our Master; but "of his kingdom there shall be
no end," for Christ, God's idea, will eventually rule all nations
and peoples - imperatively, absolutely, finally - with divine
Science. This immaculate idea, represented first by man and,
according to the Revelator, last by woman, will baptize with fire;
and the fiery baptism will burn up the chaff of error with the
fervent heat of Truth and Love, melting and purifying even the
gold of human character.
