“John saw the human and divine coincidence, shown in the man Jesus, as divinity embracing humanity in Life and its demonstration, — reducing to human perception and understanding the Life which is God.” (Science and Health, page 561)
The revelation that appeared to John was really a clear perception of what Jesus had already come to show mankind. It was a vivid realization that heaven and earth were truly one, and that this was Jesus’s message to all of us. The Christ-Truth was the wonderful news that the human and the divine coincide, are one, and that this one is Love.
Jesus came to us as the ideal man, in human form, constantly reminding the world of his relationship with God—his divine sonship. His human life was always expressing an awareness of his divine Life, his real being, and so he was able to heal and save, to be clear and right at all times, and to transcend the limits of the grave.
This is God’s kindness. He is showing us through this eternal Christ-message, that divinity embraces humanity—lovingly exists right where the human would appear to be questioning and struggling. God is Love, and His Love brings the good news of our own holy heritage and inheritance, right to where we can understand it, see it, claim it, and demonstrate it in our lives. Just as Jesus so clearly showed us how to do.
This coinciding of human and divine was no mere coincidence, in the usual sense of the word. It was God’s great purpose and design, to come to us right where we are and show us the heaven of His Love.
