On Eagles’ Wings – No Contagion

Wednesday, 10/8/14 readings, 2nd Church, Berkeley CA
KJV Gen. 1:1, 20
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
KJV Ex. 19:3 1st Moses, 4-6
3 …Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. 5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.
KJV Deut. 32:9 1st the, 10-12
9 …the LORD’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. 10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. 11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: 12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
KJV Ruth 2:12 1st a
12 …a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust.
KJV Ps. 17:1 (to 1st 4th ,), 8
1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. 8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,
KJV Ps. 36:7
7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
KJV Ps. 61:4 (to 1st .)
4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings.
KJV Ps. 91:4, 9-11
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
KJV Ps. 139:7, 9, 10
7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
KJV Isa. 40:28, 31 1st they
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. 31 …they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
KJV Matt. 14:14 1st Jesus
14 …Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
KJV Matt. 10:1 1st when, 16
1 …when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
KJV Matt. 23:1, 37
1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
KJV Luke 12:6, 7 (to 1st .)
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? 7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
KJV Luke 3:21, 22
21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
KJV Ps. 84:3
3 Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
KJV Mal. 4:2 1st unto (to 1st ;)
2 …unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings;
KJV 384:6-12
God never
punishes man for doing right, for honest labor, or for
deeds of kindness, though they expose him to fatigue,
cold, heat, contagion. If man seems to incur the penalty
through matter, this is but a belief of mortal mind, not
an enactment of wisdom, and man has only to enter his
protest against this belief in order to annul it.
KJV 220:8-9, 11-12 (to ;), 16
Instinct is better than misguided reason, as even na-
ture declares.
untired worshippers. The snowbird sings and soars
amid the blasts;
Colds, coughs, and contagion are engendered solely by
human theories.
KJV 392:27-32
When the condition is present
which you say induces disease, whether it be air, exercise,
heredity, contagion, or accident, then perform your office
as porter and shut out these unhealthy thoughts and fears.
Exclude from mortal mind the offending errors; then the
body cannot suffer from them.
KJV 393:4-21
The body seems to be self-acting, only because mortal
mind is ignorant of itself, of its own actions, and of their
results, – ignorant that the predisposing, re-
mote, and exciting cause of all bad effects is a
law of so-called mortal mind, not of matter. Mind is the
master of the corporeal senses, and can conquer sickness,
sin, and death. Exercise this God-given authority. Take
possession of your body, and govern its feeling and action.
Rise in the strength of Spirit to resist all that is unlike
good. God has made man capable of this, and nothing
can vitiate the ability and power divinely bestowed on
Be firm in your understanding that the divine Mind
governs, and that in Science man reflects God’s govern-
ment. Have no fear that matter can ache,
swell, and be inflamed as the result of a law
of any kind, when it is self-evident that matter can have
no pain nor inflammation.
KJV 240:1-2, 10-11
Nature voices natural, spiritual law and divine Love,
but human belief misinterprets nature.
In the order of Science, in which the Principle is above
what it reflects, all is one grand concord.
KJV 298:20
ual ideas, like numbers and notes, start from Principle,
and admit no materialistic beliefs. Spiritual ideas lead
up to their divine origin, God, and to the spiritual sense
of being.
KJV 261:27-30
Fixing your gaze on the realities supernal, you will
rise to the spiritual consciousness of being, even as the bird
which has burst from the egg and preens its wings for a
skyward flight.
KJV 511:23-3
To mortal mind, the universe is liquid, solid, and aeri-
form. Spiritually interpreted, rocks and mountains stand
for solid and grand ideas. Animals and mor-
tals metaphorically present the gradation of
mortal thought, rising in the scale of intelligence, taking
form in masculine, feminine, or neuter gender. The
fowls, which fly above the earth in the open firmament
of heaven, correspond to aspirations soaring beyond and
above corporeality to the understanding of the incorporeal
and divine Principle, Love.
KJV 574:3-30
The Revelator also takes in another view, adapted to
console the weary pilgrim, journeying “uphill all the way.”
He writes, in Revelation xxi. 9: –
And there came unto me one of the seven angels which
had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked
with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride,
the Lamb’s wife.
This ministry of Truth, this message from divine Love,
carried John away in spirit. It exalted him till he be-
came conscious of the spiritual facts of being
and the “New Jerusalem, coming down from
God, out of heaven,” – the spiritual outpour-
ing of bliss and glory, which he describes as the city
which “lieth foursquare.” The beauty of this text is,
that the sum total of human misery, represented by
the seven angelic vials full of seven plagues, has full
compensation in the law of Love. Note this, – that the
very message, or swift-winged thought, which poured
forth hatred and torment, brought also the experience
which at last lifted the seer to behold the great city, the
four equal sides of which were heaven-bestowed and
Think of this, dear reader, for it will lift the sack-
cloth from your eyes, and you will behold the soft-
winged dove descending upon you. The very
circumstance, which your suffering sense
deems wrathful and afflictive, Love can make an angel
entertained unawares.
KJV 584:26
DOVE. A symbol of divine Science; purity and peace;
hope and faith.
KJV 55:15-16
Truth’s immortal idea is sweeping down the centuries,
gathering beneath its wings the sick and sinning.
KJV 323:6
Through the wholesome chastisements of Love, we
are helped onward in the march towards righteousness,
peace, and purity, which are the landmarks
of Science. Beholding the infinite tasks of
truth, we pause, – wait on God. Then we push onward,
until boundless thought walks enraptured, and concep-
tion unconfined is winged to reach the divine glory.
