True Being

As the vision of man's true spiritual being unfolded to the disciple John on Patmos, there came the assurance of the very presence of God with him in the voice which spake, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men. and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God." The disciple had reached a scientific sense of existence, and looking out from this divine consciousness, contemplated the infinite nature of spiritual creation, of man and the universe. He saw God, Spirit, as the creator of man, and man one with his creator.

From the mount of revelation the beloved disciple saw "a new heaven and a new earth," and perceived that there was to be "no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying," neither was there to be "any more pain." For him matter then disappeared, and with it went its concomitants, sin, disease, pain, and death, for Spirit was seen to be All and infinite. The beliefs of the fleshly mind had passed from sense and sight, and John was uplifted to behold the holy city, the New Jerusalem, in its purity and perfection, and to behold man in his real being as the beloved of God. This revelation of the new sense of existence enabled him to transcribe for us in immortal words the closing book of the Holy Scriptures.
