Our spiritual identity is at the right hand of MIND
Genesis 1:26 (21st Century King James Version)
26And God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
Eddy: “All that is made is the work of God, and all is good.”
The first chapter of Genesis, wherein a GOOD/GOD regards his handiwork as “very good,” was written 400 years later than the second chapter of Genesis, wherein a failed creator employs matter to make a failed creation. By taking our cue from the 1st chapter of Genesis we can deduce that INTELLIGENCE/LOVE expresses its unrestrained beauty, wholeness, excellence and permanence throughout a matter-free universe and in incorporeal man/woman.
Genesis 3:13 (21st Century King James Version)
13And the LORD God said unto the woman, "What is this that thou hast done?" And the woman said, "The serpent beguiled me, and I ate."
Eddy: “Adam and his progeny were cursed, not blessed; and this indicates that the divine Spirit, or Father, condemns material man and remands him to dust.”
Although the 2nd chapter of Genesis describes failure from beginning to end, it is still helpful in that it exposes the mental workings of evil. We learn that guilt, fear, illness, selfishness, hatred and failure deceive and manipulate a matter-trapped mentality. But a SPIRIT-induced state of thinking is empowered to be healthy, intelligent, and prolific. Spiritual comprehension remands evil to dust.
Matthew 10:1 (21st Century King James Version)
And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Eddy: “Entirely separate from the belief and dream of material living is the Life divine, revealing spiritual understanding and the consciousness of man’s dominion over the whole earth.”
A Christ-induced state of mind separates illness, mistakes and failure from the person. Once they are no longer beguiling they disintegrate. In turn, we discover new spiritual powers to accomplish more good.
Acts 14:8-10 (Worldwide English (New Testament))
8At Lystra a man was sitting. He was not able to walk because he had no strength in his feet. He had never walked since he was born. 9This man heard Paul speak. Paul looked at the man. He saw that the man believed he would be healed. 10Paul said, `Stand up on your feet!' The man jumped up and walked.
Eddy: “We must look where we would walk, and we must act as possessing all power from Him in whom we have our being.”
We have our health, intelligence and life in MIND/SPIRIT, and not in feeble and deceiving corporeality. Therefore everything that expresses GOOD is attainable.
2 Corinthians 3:18 (New International Reader's Version)
18 Our faces are not covered with a veil. We all display the Lord's glory. We are being changed to become more like him so that we have more and more glory. And the glory comes from the Lord, who is the Holy Spirit.
Because our core essence is a part of SPIRIT we can learn to emit more of our SPIRIT-propelled splendor, magnificence and prosperity.
