The Imposition & Demonology of Mesmerism

With your permission we will refer briefly to our subject of a fortnight ago before proceeding with our topic for today

Understand the Principle not person

Pantheism

God is Love not has love

Two different statements bring out different results

Faith in a person

The new tongue is the spiritual version of the ScripturesAs Written:scrip

The old tongue is material history

We heal the sick spiritually

Creeds cannot heal, relate to a person

Theologians do not heal

our students do

No other name given under heavenAs Written:heave scienceActs 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Have I the right terms?

a camel

multiply 4 by 5

with this reference to the subject of our last lecture which subject was the direct opposite of Mesmerism etc

We will consider

1st Those who cannot practice Mesmerism

no faith in matter or evil

second The different classes of mesmerizers (there are three)

third Our observations of the evil effects of mesmerism (The MD's need to understand it difficult to handle)

fourth Its imposition (a lie, a kingdom dividedMark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. )

fifth Its subtlety or demonology

As the serpent is the symbol more subtle than all the beasts of the fieldGen 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? so mesmerism is the most hidden and deadly of all the powers that an evil mind possesses and its direct symbol is the serpent its power to charm etc
