Full of the knowledge of the Lord

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. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    Isaiah 11: 9 “…for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.”

    This citation connected with me this morning, and I found something beautiful in Barnes’ Notes on the Bible. This is a promise that “the earth shall be full of a correct understanding of the existence, perfections, plans, and claims of God; and shall be disposed to yield to those claims – thus producing universal peace.” This is something we can hold to and expect during this holiday season for ourselves and for all countries and all people.

    As the waters cover the sea – “The vast waters of the ocean cover all its depths, find their way into all the caverns, flow into all the recesses on the shore – and thus shall the knowledge of Yahweh spread like deep, flowing waters, until the earth shall be pervaded and covered with it.”

    Just ponder: The knowledge (correct understanding) of God will spread like deep, flowing waters, which will find its way to every man, woman, and child, until all the earth will feel its influence. What an inspiring thought!
