Light breaking forth, Love dawning

Wednesday, July 9th readings, 2nd Church, Berkeley
SH Ps. 89:15
15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
SH Eccl. 9:13-18 (to 1st :)
13 This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me: 14 There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: 15 Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. 16 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard. 17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools. 18 Wisdom is better than weapons of war:
SH Isa. 11:9
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
SH Isa. 42:6, 7, 16
6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
SH Luke 11:5-8
5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; 6 For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? 7 And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. 8 I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth.
SH Matt. 17:14-16, 18-20
14 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying, 15 Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatick, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water. 16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. 18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour. 19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
SH Ps. 119:105
105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
SH Ps. 36:5, 9
5 Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. 9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
SH xi:9-21
The physical healing of Christian Science results
now, as in Jesus’ time, from the operation of divine
Principle, before which sin and disease lose their real-
ity in human consciousness and disappear as naturally
and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and
sin to reformation. Now, as then, these mighty works
are not supernatural, but supremely natural. They are
the sign of Immanuel, or “God with us,” a divine
influence ever present in human consciousness and re-
peating itself, coming now as was promised aforetime,
To preach deliverance to the captives [of sense],
And recovering of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty them that are bruised.
SH 596:23-25
Though the way is dark in mortal sense, divine Life
and Love illumine it, destroy the unrest of mortal thought,
the fear of death, and the supposed reality of error.
SH 338:1-8
Christian Science, rightly under-
stood, leads to eternal harmony. It brings to light the
only living and true God and man as made in His like-
ness; whereas the opposite belief – that man originates
in matter and has beginning and end, that he is both
soul and body, both good and evil, both spiritual and
material – terminates in discord and mortality, in the
error which must be destroyed by Truth.
SH 560:6
1. And there appeared a great wonder in
heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon
under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve
SH 562:3
Ghost,- divine Science. 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. The moon is under her feet. This idea
reveals the universe as secondary and tributary to Spirit,
from which the universe borrows its reflected light, sub-
stance, life, and intelligence.
SH 557:18
“In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children.” Divine
Science rolls back the clouds of error with the light of
Truth, and lifts the curtain on man as never born and as
never dying, but as coexistent with his creator.
SH 538:11-13
The sun, giving light and heat to the earth, is a figure
of divine Life and Love, enlightening and sustaining the
SH 511:11-14
In divine Science, which is the seal of Deity and has
the impress of heaven, God is revealed as in-
finite light. In the eternal Mind, no night is
SH 508:26-4
13. And the evening and the morning were
the third day.
The third stage in the order of Christian Science is an
important one to the human thought, letting in the light
of spiritual understanding. This period corresponds to
the resurrection, when Spirit is discerned to be the Life of
all, and the deathless Life, or Mind, dependent
upon no material organization.
SH 505:26-28
This understanding is not intellectual, is not the result
of scholarly attainments; it is the reality of all things
brought to light.
SH 503:12-15
Divine Science, the Word of
God, saith to the darkness upon the face of error, “God
is All-in-all,” and the light of ever-present Love illumines
the universe.
SH 454:18-19
Love inspires,
illumines, designates, and leads the way.
SH 503:20-22
Immortal and divine Mind presents the idea of God:
first, in light; second, in reflection; third, in spiritual and
immortal forms of beauty and goodness.
SH 479:23
Darkness and chaos
are the imaginary opposites of light, understanding,
and eternal harmony, and they are the elements of
SH 474:31-32
Truth destroys falsity and error, for light and
darkness cannot dwell together.
SH 461:1-4, 11
real man is immortal and that he lives in
Spirit, not matter. Christian Science must
be accepted at this period by induction. We admit the
whole, because a part is proved and that part illustrates
because Science reverses the evidence before the material
senses and furnishes the eternal interpretation of God and
SH 305:6-8
Man, in the
likeness of his Maker, reflects the central light
of being, the invisible God.
