CHAPTER 16 - The Apocalypse





Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this
prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for
the time is at hand. - Revelation.

Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our,
God, in the mountain of His holiness. - Psalms.



( - The Apocalypse -)
St. John writes, in the tenth chapter of his book of Revelation: -


(The new Evangel)
And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: and he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth.



This angel or message which comes from God, clothed with a cloud, prefigures divine Science. To mortal sense Science seems at first obscure, abstract, and dark; but a bright promise crowns its brow. When understood, it is Truth's prism and praise. When you look it fairly in the face, you can heal by its means, and it has for you a light above the sun, for God "is the light thereof." Its feet are pillars of fire, foundations of Truth and Love. It brings the baptism of the Holy Ghost, whose flames of Truth were prophetically described by John the Baptist as consuming error.
