"a new heaven and a new earth."

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    The Revelator tells us of “a new heaven and a new earth.” Have you ever pictured this heaven and earth, inhabited by beings under the control of supreme wisdom?

    What a great question, good to ask oneself, unless we are so convinced with this opposite view of existence that we cannot fathom this Truth of a new heaven and earth where there is Truth, order, calm and harmony with all under the control of the supreme Mind!

    As we consistently strive and reject the false sense of body, supply, relationships etc. and replace them with the Truth of our being and “Mind’s verdict” of Life we gradually gain some of what this new earth and heaven is….. greater peace, love, life that is ordered by God’s guidance. It is true for all now.

    When we work to overcome the temptations/errors/lies that try us, we do so for all mankind, that is the selfless Love; which is the Principle of Christian Science!

    Thank you for this post!

    The words “a new heaven and a new earth” have been in my thought a lot this week. Upon first coming to Plainfield, and it was like nothing I had ever experienced! This wonderful place with people who were legitimately seeking to be and do as God directed. To me, this church literally was “inhabited by beings under the control of supreme wisdom.” Yet surprisingly, they admitted they were still striving. Even more shocking, the Christian Science they showed me freely gave the tools to get myself on that same path.

    In Revelation 21: 5, God says, “Behold, I make all things new.” How many times this has happened these past few years! An idea from the week’s lesson gets assimilated, and my consciousness gets upended and I wonder what I knew before. In these moments — once again! — He makes for me “a new heaven and a new earth” where everything takes on a more vibrant color.

    I am so grateful for this Science, and for all the ways that this church has enabled me to incrementally find the meaning in Life and my place in Mind so that I can step-by-step become one of the “beings under the control of supreme wisdom.” Thank you!
