government upon his shoulder

Wed., 11/5/12 readings, Second Church, Berkeley
SH Ps. 55:22 (to 1st :)
22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee:
SH Isa. 9:6 1st unto (to 2nd :), 7 (to 1st .)
6 …unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.
SH Acts 10:38 1st God (to 1st :)
38 …God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power:

SH I Cor. 11:3 1st I (to 1st ;)
3 …I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ;
SH Eph. 4:1-3, 14, 15
1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
SH I Tim. 2:1-3, 5
1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
SH Rev. 5:13 1st Blessing
13 …Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.
SH 587:25-26 (to 1st ;)
HEAVEN. Harmony; the reign of Spirit; government
by divine Principle;
SH 332:9-11 Christ, 19 Jesus (to ;), 29
Christ is the true idea
voicing good, the divine message from God to men speak-
ing to the human consciousness.
Jesus demonstrated Christ; he proved that Christ
is the divine idea of God – the Holy Ghost,
or Comforter, revealing the divine Principle,
Love, and leading into all truth.
He expressed the highest type of
divinity, which a fleshly form could express in that age.
Into the real and ideal man the fleshly element cannot
enter. Thus it is that Christ illustrates the coincidence,
or spiritual agreement, between God and man in His
SH 26:12-14
“I and my Father are one.” This Christ,
or divinity of the man Jesus, was his divine
nature, the godliness which animated him.
SH 270:23-24
Meekness and charity have divine
SH 31:13-17
He attached
no importance to dead ceremonies. It is the
living Christ, the practical Truth, which makes
Jesus “the resurrection and the life” to all who follow him
in deed.
SH 49:21-25
He was to prove that the Christ
is not subject to material conditions, but is above the
reach of human wrath, and is able, through Truth,
Life, and Love, to triumph over sin, sickness, death, and
the grave.
SH 136:2
He taught
his followers that his religion had a divine
Principle, which would cast out error and heal
both the sick and the sinning. He claimed no intelli-
gence, action, nor life separate from God. Despite the
persecution this brought upon him, he used his divine
power to save men both bodily and spiritually.
SH 26:14
Divine Truth,
Life, and Love gave Jesus authority over sin, sickness,
and death. His mission was to reveal the Science of
celestial being, to prove what God is and what He does
for man.
SH 62:24 let
let no mortal inter-
fere with God’s government by thrusting in the laws of
erring, human concepts.
SH 168:15
Because man-made systems insist that man becomes
sick and useless, suffers and dies, all in consonance with
the laws of God, are we to believe it? Are
we to believe an authority which denies God’s
spiritual command relating to perfection, – an authority
which Jesus proved to be false? He did the will of the
Father. He healed sickness in defiance of what is called
material law, but in accordance with God’s law, the law
of Mind.
SH 125:16-17
Reflecting God’s
government, man is self-governed.
SH 128:4-6
The term Science, properly understood, refers only to
the laws of God and to His government of the universe,
inclusive of man.
SH 264:32-5
The universe of Spirit is peopled with spiritual beings,
and its government is divine Science. Man is the off-
spring, not of the lowest, but of the highest qualities of
Mind. Man understands spiritual existence
in proportion as his treasures of Truth and
Love are enlarged.
SH 378:22-24
Disease is not an intelligence to dispute the empire of
Mind or to dethrone Mind and take the government into
its own hands.

SH 381:28-4
It is man’s
moral right to annul an unjust sentence, a sentence never
inflicted by divine authority.
Christ Jesus overruled the error which would impose
penalties for transgressions of the physical laws of
health; he annulled supposed laws of matter, opposed
to the harmonies of Spirit, lacking divine au-
thority and having only human approval for
their sanction.
SH 340:23-25 (to ;)
One infinite God, good, unifies men and nations; con-
stitutes the brotherhood of man; ends wars; fulfils the
Scripture, “Love thy neighbor as thyself;
SH 94:14
Tyranny, intolerance, and bloodshed, wherever found,
arise from the belief that the infinite is formed after the
pattern of mortal personality, passion, and impulse.
SH 106:6-11
Like our nation, Christian Science has its Declaration
of Independence. God has endowed man with inalien-
able rights, among which are self-government,
reason, and conscience. Man is properly self-
governed only when he is guided rightly and governed by
his Maker, divine Truth and Love.
SH 224:28
Truth brings the elements of liberty. On its banner
is the Soul-inspired motto, “Slavery is abolished.” The
power of God brings deliverance to the cap-
tive. No power can withstand divine Love.
What is this supposed power, which opposes itself to God?
Whence cometh it? What is it that binds man with iron
shackles to sin, sickness, and death? Whatever enslaves
man is opposed to the divine government. Truth makes
man free.
SH 230:6-8
This awakening is the for-
ever coming of Christ, the advanced appearing of Truth,
which casts out error and heals the sick.
SH 565:13-18
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 di-
vine Science.
