The Mantle of Elijah

By Ken Cooper

The mantle of Elijah
It fell down to the ground
I wrapped it round my shoulders,
And prophecy I found.

I saw that God was present,
And with me everywhere,
A spiritual discernment
That Love is always here.

I looked away from matter
Saw this truth of being:
All prophecy is NOW, -
‘Tis what God is seeing!

Material sense it faded,
The spiritual won through:
God became my only thought,
And Love my only view!

I kept it wrapped around me,
Understood this Truth:
God is pure perfection,
I AM the living proof!

ELIAS. Prophecy; spiritual evidence opposed to material sense; Christian Science, with which can be discerned the spiritual fact of whatever the material senses behold; the basis of immortality.
"Elias truly shall first come and restore all things." (Matthew xvii. 11.)
