“Carlyle, the prince of literary critics, said ‘The book of Job is the most wonderful and beautiful literary production ever given to the world.’ Certainly the scientific truths of astrology and alchemy, and of the Spirit’s operation in flesh, as set forth in that book, are without a parallel. The letters J, O, B, have an occult, scientific meaning, I and J are the same IOB meaning the same as JOB. I means the Eternal I. All the Hebrew letters were formed from I. O means the universe, without beginning or end, and B means Beth, a body, house, church, or temple. Therefore, GOD, or all, may be dis- covered as seen in JOB or IOB. The word, Job, has no reference to a person. The name, or letters of the word, symbolize principle, the same as wisdom, knowledge, in- telligence, or Christ, or Buddha. We symbolize the principles of our government in personalities, and picture them in the form of a man or woman, namely, Uncle Sam, or Columbia. But we do more than that: we put words in their mouth and make them utter speech. And shall we ignore these facts when dealing with the record of past ages? One record plainly states that Jesus spake only in parables.
But let us consider more closely the discovery of God. The numerical value of G.O.D., according to ancient Kabalia, is nine the all of mathematics no person is alluded to. If the statement, ‘I and the Father are one,’ is true, the ‘I’ must be the Father manifested or ex- pressed. As it is not possible to conceive of the Father except through expression, we must conclude that manifestation in some form of so-called matter is eternal the great necessity and has therefore always been.”
The just read excerpt came from the book God-Man: The Word Made Flesh, 1920, p. 34, which was written by Dr. George Carey.
