Join us for the best summer yet!

Ken Cooper’s “POETIC POSTLUDE” shares poetry inspired by Bible citations, together with combined translations, that show ONE GOD, NECESSARILY PERFECT, MEANS ONE CREATION, NECESSARILY PERFECT. See this week’s Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lesson on:

“GOD THE ONLY CAUSE AND CREATOR.”
For Sunday, December 3, 2023


As God is the only cause and creator, we can rejoice because anything not of God is not true. As there is no other cause, there can be no other effect than good. Fact.

 GOLDEN TEXT

Isaiah 61:10     I will shout with sheer joy for God is just incredible! He hath given me a wonderful wardrobe of the very best clothes, wrapping me with salvation and righteousness. I am as a couple at their wedding wearing their very best, in love, joy and expectancy of good.

Isaiah 61:11     For as surely as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to bud and blossom, so I the Lord God will cause righteousness, justice, and praise to spring forth and bloom for everyone to see and know that my Word is ever self-fulfilling as you.

RESPONSIVE READING.

Added: Psalms 33:4  He is always true to what He says. His word is perfect and can always be trusted. Everything He does is reliable, right and loved by Him!

Added: Psalms 33:5  God loves righteousness and sound wisdom. It fills the earth, – His goodness and truth are expressed everywhere .

Psalm 33:9  The Word God speaks is instantly fulfilled, what He commands stands forever, complete, and forever perfect.

Psalm 104:14  You cause the grass to grow for the cattle, and every kind of vegetation and fruit springs forth that we may eat in plenty.

Psalm 104:24  O God, everywhere we look Your good works are evident! You made everything with Your wisdom shining through, the earth overflows with your wonderful creations.

 Following from last week, what gratitude we can have and share that WE LIVE IN THE CONSTANT PERFECTION AND SHINE OF THE ONE INFINITE GOD. LIFE, TRUTH, LOVE, SPIRIT, SOUL, MIND, PRINCIPLE, ARE MADE MANIFEST AS MAN, THEY COMBINE AS THE CAUSE OF ALL CREATION!


  • Click ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­“PERFECT GUARANTEE”, a certificate (revised) stating the fact that everything is “MADE BY GOD”, – it can be attached to everything you properly see! (Everything Jesus saw!). And where did God make it? “IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!” IN THE HERE AND NOW OF LOVE. 
  • Click “PERFECT PEACE”  When we are still, in the silence of prayer, we can behold and feel the wonder of creation, knowing it is the All-in-all of God, the presence and proof of Love:

CREATION IS EMBRACED IN BOTH THE STRENGTH AND SOFTNESS OF OUR FATHER-MOTHER,

BORNE SAFELY IN OUR FATHER’S MIGHTY ARMS, CONSCIOUS ONLY OF OUR MOTHER’S TENDER LOVE.”

The PDF copy shows a rainbow over some trees, – a reminder that GOD’S PROMISE IS PERFECT PEACE, FOR WE LIVE IN THE “KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. THE REIGN OF HARMONY IN DIVINE SCIENCE; …” S&H P. 590:1–2 (TO ;)) and this is not just for a few but for everyone, everywhere:

“Thy kingdom come.

Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present.” (S&H p.16:30)

 GOD’S PERFECTION, CREATION, IS EVER-PRESENT.

“ONE GOD IS ALL THAT EVER CAN BE, ETERNAL NOW HIS POWER,

AND CREATION-GLORY MIRRORS FORTH FROM MAN AND ROCK AND FLOWER.”

May I recommend the video prepared by the Longyear Museum on the life of Mary Baker Eddy. (scroll down) She proved what she taught:

 “Thus Truth engrounds me on the rock,
Upon Life’s shore,
’Gainst which the winds and waves can shock,
Oh, nevermore!”
(Hymn 253:5)    God is our rock, OUR BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN. When we rejoice, that is the effect!
 

  • Click “HELP THOU MINE UNBELIEF” a deep monologue, sharing the thoughts of a desperate and loving father, reaching out to Jesus, and experiencing the response of Love.

“THE EVIDENCE BEFORE MY EYES IS NO LONGER TRUE! OH HOW TO DESCRIBE WHAT I SEE AND THEN FEEL. HE HAS SPOKEN WITH THE POWER OF TRUTH. ALL MY FEARS, DOUBTS, HAVE BEEN WASHED AWAY ………………..I TURN TO JESUS “LORD, DO I NOW BELIEVE! THANK YOU. THANK YOU! THANK YOU.”

As with last week, thanksgiving is the affirmation of one God, one cause, one perfect creation.
