"THE HOUR IS COME"

There is nothing fatalistic in the teachings of Christ Jesus, but there is recognition of the precision with which Truth unfolds itself to mankind through the action of divine law. On two occasions the Master said, "The hour is come," implying that God's law does not operate haphazardly, but with perfect order as one step Spiritward follows another in an individual's experience.

When Jesus said to his mother at the marriage in Cana of Galilee (John 2:4), "Mine hour is not yet come," he may have been showing the unwisdom of attempting to force the development of Truth to human thought. His desires were so fully in accord with the divine will that he always knew when to act and what to do in order to carry out his divine mission of proving Spirit's allness and supremacy. In "Miscellaneous Writings," Mary Baker Eddy says (p. 134), "In God's hour, the powers of earth and hell are proven powerless." When one's acceptance of Truth is sufficiently advanced, nothing can prevent one from giving proofs of Truth's government.
