Our Holy Demonstration

When puzzled or dismayed by temptation, we may note with confidence that in the messages to the seven churches, found in the second and third chapters of Revelation, the uncovering of error and the demand for overcoming are accompanied by divine authority indicated in such words as, "These things saith the Son of God," or, "Let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." We should always listen to the utterances of Spirit and of the Son of God, for thereby we can discover the remedy for any and every problem. We should determinedly look away from mortal thought-phantoms to the infinite divine Mind, in which they have no place. We should not mentally dwell with mesmeric fear on the belief to be overcome, but sacredly ponder the truth which obliterates false belief.

In this same chapter the sufficiency of spiritual power is conveyed through the symbolism of seven stars and seven golden candlesticks. In other words, we are to accept the fact that there is always a sufficiency of spiritual light to lead us on to triumphant demonstration and to illumine every step of our upward way.

As divine Truth, devoutly dwelt upon, becomes real to us, false beliefs vanish as a mist in the sunshine of divine Love. In this sunshine of real being we must abide, confident that the necessity for overcoming points, in every case, to the surety of overcoming. He who drifts into believing that his case is exceptionally difficult to heal needs to dismiss that argument as mortal egotism, as faith in evil rather than faith in good. There is no exception to the power of God. Truth is no respecter of persons, no respecter of false claims, and the authority and harmony of spiritual law can be demonstrated in every case.
