"ALL THE LAND WHICH THOU SEEST"

"ABRAHAM, Jacob, Moses, and the prophets caught glorious glimpses of the Messiah, or Christ, which baptized these seers in the divine nature, the essence of Love." These "glorious glimpses of the Messiah, or Christ," of which Mary Baker Eddy was speaking in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 333), come to human consciousness in proportion to one's receptivity to Truth. Appearing as spiritual thoughts, intuitions of goodness, clear convictions of the allness and loving-kindness of God, they enrich our present experience.

To the patriarch Abraham came the spiritual sense of God's infinitude. Even though it may have been but a glimpse of the infinity of Spirit, it lifted his thought to great heights of inspired faith. The book of Genesis relates (13:14, 15), "The Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward : for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever."
