Insight into the Blood and the Glory increases when one sees how they travel a circular route. The Lord had shown me this path of His glory and man before I "accidentally" found the writings of A.E. Mitchell who articulated God's circles so well.

On a visit to Angelus Temple in 1982 I stumbled upon his set of 10 small pocket books copyrighted in 1928 and entitled The Philosophy of The Cross. Mitchell was a minister, missionary, writer, and artist who departed earth for heaven in 1964 at the age of 87.

Andrew and his wife, Jennie, founded the global missionary organization Go Ye Fellowship.

Billy Graham wrote for the cover of Mrs. Mitchell's biography entitled Jennie, "The story of this remarkable woman should be read by every man, woman, and child, Christian and non-Christian alike. She truly adhered to Jesus' command to 'Go ye into every part of all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.'"

Richard Halverson, Chaplain, U.S. Senate, endorsing the same book said of the Mitchells, "No two people in my 52 years of pilgrimage with Christ have so demonstrated authentic holiness as Jennie and Andrew."

Bible Doctrine's Circular Path
A.E. Mitchell said, "All Bible doctrine is built and runs its course in circular form."

He gave the example of Jesus' illustration of His own mission. "I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father" (John 16:28). Can you see the circle?

Mitchell wrote, "All divine circles culminate in 'glory,' God being glorified...The gospel Godward is the great reason for the gospel "usward." As much as Christ did for men on the cross, He did infinitely more for God. And this, we believe, is the best part of circle teaching.

As the footsteps of Christ come usward, they bring salvation. As they return to God they bring to the Father utter and eternal pleasure and glory...The gospel usward is that which we are saved from, the gospel Godward is that which we are saved to...we are redeemed to God, and to His glory."

Rom. 11:36 shows the circle, "For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen."

The following passage reveals how God's Word travels a circular route:
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but (except it) watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
(Isa. 55:8-11)
Rain and snow, in the natural realm, demonstrate the path God's Word travels. They come down earthward. They return heavenward in the natural process of evaporation.

Yet they do not return without first bringing forth fruit upon the earth. Likewise God's Word originates in Him, travels earthward, accomplishes, and then returns to bring God glory.

The Glory travels that path. The Church travels that path. The Blood traveled that path.
