"Great and mighty things"

"Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." While yet incarcerated in the prison court, by order of Zedekiah, king of Judah, the prophet Jeremiah found such spiritual freedom in communion with God that utterance was given to some of the most inspired and inspiring statements of prophecy contained in the Bible. The above quotation, found in the thirty-third chapter of his book, is a fair example of the scope of his vision. And, in fact, a careful study of the entire chapter brings to light promises of exceeding comfort and joy; promises of healing and "abundance of peace;" the liberation of captives; purifying from all iniquity; also the performance of promised good to Israel, in the appearance of "the Branch of righteousness."

How the narrow walls of his dungeon must have vanished from sight, as the prophet beheld with true vision the actualities of Spirit, the government of good, confirmed centuries later by Christ Jesus and his apostles! Again, centuries later, the Jeremian visions were confirmed by Mary Baker Eddy, in the teachings of Christian Science, concerning whose Biblical foundation she writes, on page 269 of Science and Health: "The testimony of the material senses is neither absolute nor divine. I therefore plant myself unreservedly on the teachings of Jesus, of his apostles, of the prophets, and on the testimony of the Science of Mind. Other foundations there are none." What "great and mighty things" patriarchs and prophets were permitted to witness, as they communed with God! These revelations of a day long gone by have continued down the ages; and to-day the great and mighty things are for all who call unto Him, for, as Paul writes to the Romans, "the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him."
