RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for February 27, 2011 

              This week, I am continuing with "wealth-building" ideas to insure that each person who seeks to demonstrate greater prosperity (money), will have the opportunity to find the way that works for them to do just that.  In both the philosophy of the Master Mind Jesus and the evolutionary science of mind, we find ways in which to realize greater success and financial prosperity ... and these ways work for all of us in the very same way ... they are universal principles available to all of us.

24`Some men were standing there. He said to them, "Take the money from him. Give it to the man who has ten times as much."   25They said, "Sir, he has ten times as much already!"   26The ruler said, "I tell you. Anyone who has some will get more. But he who does not have anything, even the little that he has will be taken away from him." - from "Parable of the Talents" Luke 19:12-28 (Worldwide English (New Testament))

      It is no wonder that many Christians continue to be confused about the Master Mind Jesus' teachings on wealth, as we can find contradictions even within the Gospels that show even those who were closest to him, were confused as well.  These contradictions are not on purpose but are based on consciousness.  We can only understand anything to the level of our awareness about it, no matter what it may be.  If I were to attend a speaking presentation on calculus, I am sure I would come away from that presentation with a very different level of understanding than someone who has mastered calculus.  And this is the truth about those who followed the radical Jesus and then either told someone or wrote about what they had heard him say ... each were writing or telling about his philosophy to the level of their own, unique understanding.  But, the essence of what they were talking or writing about, is the pearl of great price that every spiritual seeker is attracted to.

     The radical Jesus knew that if we were to seek wealth or riches in order to feel secure or at peace with life, then we would never realize the security or peace that we desired. 
We must seek first the "Kingdom of G-d" he said, and then "all things will be added unto you" ...  and prior to this statement he said as written in Matthew 6:30 "Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?"  Are these the words of someone who believes that we should live in financial struggle and lack?  Of course not.  The radical Jesus did not live a life of poverty or lack because he knew and demonstrated that we can always be provided for, just as he was provided for.  But, we must realize within our consciousness the Presence of our Good ... not our lack.  In "The Science of Mind" pages 280-283, Dr. Holmes writes:  "Why is it that Jesus could say to the paralyzed man, "Take up thy bed and walk"?  Because Jesus knew when he said this that the man would get up and walk.  He not only believed that there was Something to respond to him but he had an equivalent of its response, which is just as necessary. ... The Law is Infinite and Perfect but in order to make a demonstration, we must have a mental equivalent of the thing we desire."  Whatever it is that we desire to experience, we must have it in our mind, first.

"Remember:  What you desire with all your heart, with all your mind, with all your soul, you will become - if you believe it and commit your thoughts and energies to its attainment.  If you are not becoming it, then there must be something within you that does not want it as much as you think you do, or maybe you want it, but negate the manifestation by believing that it is impossible for you to attain."  - Dr. Frank Richelieu, "The Art Of Being Yourself"

If our mind is in tune with the Infinite, that is with the faith and belief that what we seek, is already ours, then we shall find our relationship with G-d will never disappoint us.  If, on the other hand, we are looking for something outside of us; person, place, or thing, to validate our faith, then we do not yet have the mental equivalent of the thing that we want to experience.  The mental equivalent is the realization of it ... sustained by our faith.  When we have the mental equivalent of the thing, we are using truth; the truth is Absolute, dependable, unchangeable ... all else is subject to change.  Truth and G-d are never difficult or distant, both are as close to us as our consciousness ... but it is up to us to accept this ... it is up to us to choose what is the truth for us and about us.

      The things of the physical are for our use ... they are not for us to depend on ... or to increase our self-esteem, our feeling of importance, or our feeling of peace and security ... these things must come from within us ... from within our knowing that we are part of G-d; in G-d and of G-d.  As Dr. Frank Richelieu writes, if we are not having the life experience we want, then there is something within us that is negating it.  We may not ever know what this is.  It may be the influence of confusing religious instruction, past experiences, and even family influences. 
I can absolutely declare with certainty, that as we make a commitment to attain success, wealth or whatever it is that we desire to experience, and make the attainment of it the truth in our mind ... then we can depend on G-d, Absolute Principle, Intelligence and Power, to open the way for us to receive in the physical what we hold as truth in consciousness ... this is the truth for everyone, everywhere ... for to everyone who has, more will be given ... the radical Jesus believed this, declared it as truth, and so do I.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
