Peals That Should Startle

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!

    SH 223:25-32 Peals that should startle the slumbering thought from its erroneous dream are partially unheeded; but the last trump has not sounded, or this would not be so. Marvels, calamities, and sin will much more abound as truth urges upon mortals its resisted claims; but the awful daring of sin destroys sin, and foreshadows the triumph of truth. God will over-turn, until “He come whose right it is.”

    Peals from Webster: A loud sound, usually a succession of loud sounds, as of bells, thunder, cannon, shouts of a multitude, etc.

    This citation from the Lesson on Adam and Fallen Man, beautifully relates to the command in this Week’s Lesson Rom 13:1,11 1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

    All that appears to be happening around the world should be the peals we must heed, to acknowledge the reign of Truth and Love and live accordingly. Should we wait for the last trump to awaken us to the understanding of God’s ALLNESS? As in SH 514, “Understanding the control which Love held over all, Daniel felt safe in the lions’ den, and Paul proved the viper to be harmless.” The great need is the spiritual awakening of all mankind to the TRUTH OF WHAT IS.
