Rev Bates on the Radio
     "Live from Palm Springs"
  Simulcast on the Internet Globally
RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for April 25, 2010 

                   This week we are in week #2 of a 6-week prosperity series of lessons that I am giving so that each of us have an opportunity to "discover" the way in which we can increase our measure of prosperity and financial ease.  I am presenting these lessons via the web site text messages, on the Sunday morning radio program and on the 6-Wednesday evening radio programs.  The first step to realizing greater prosperity is "commitment to prosperity" and so to "activate" our commitment to prosperity, I am suggesting that after each lesson, everyone is to send $1 to Rev. Bates at P. O. Box 1173, Palm Springs, CA  92263 ... I will also accept non-U.S. currency ... write on the outside of the envelope "#2" this week ... and then "#3", etc.  for the remaining of the 6-weeks of commitment to prosperity as we gain a "conviction" that we can experience a more prosperous life, now. - Rev Bates

Dare to be definite about prosperity, if you want prosperity to be definite in manifesting for you. People often hesitate to write down and think about what they really desire. They do not realize that the mind is the connecting link between man and the rich but unformed substance of the universe. If you never think definitely about the prosperous results you desire, no mental contact is made with the rich substance of the universe; you must drift along in a stream of limitation and dissatisfaction.
          .............                       When you write down your desires for the day, week, or month, list what you really want—not what you think you should have, nor what somebody else thinks you should have. Your deep-seated desires are God's good tapping at the door of your mind. Furthermore, write down dates by which you wish your desired good to be accomplished. You will be amazed at how the substance of heaven and earth will hasten to do your bidding when you give it definite desires and dates through which to work out good results.
" - Catherine Ponder, How to Live a Prosperous Life

     Often, we forget that we have so many things available to us to "open our mind to receive" ... last week I talked about us being "too busy" ... but, I think there is more to it than just that, often, we just really don't believe that it will make any difference.  And I think this comes from our collective belief in "luck" or "fortune"... and the luckiest person is the one with the greatest of faith.  We must always remember and never forget, "our faith is our fortune."  The good thing about faith is that we can cultivate it ... and increase it beyond any measure of faith we have possessed in the past.  We do this by making a decision to do so.  That's all it takes to increase our faith ... a decision ... a decision that we stick to, even when it appears that our faith has failed us.

Catherine Ponder's books are studied around the world and countless numbers of people have benefited from her lessons in prosperity.  But ... not one person has benefited that did not put into practice the lessons that she teaches and writes about.  Her books are filled with testimonials of people who have prospered in their health, their finances and their personal relationships.  Prosper means to increase or add to, that which we already have ... whatever it may be.  Many spiritual teachers have taught that we give our thoughts, words and ideas greater power by writing them down.  Yet, Catherine Ponder has illuminated the practice so well, that it would be foolish not to make the decision to put this idea into daily practice.  

     So many of the things that seem so simplistic, create profound shifts in our consciousness.  The reason this is so, I believe, is because the Grace of G-d is always giving us the most effortless ways possible in which to receive a greater good.  Writing down our desires for the day is simple ... and so is putting a dollar in an envelope and mailing it ... and by doing so, we are giving our mind direction aligned with faith  ... and faith always finds its fulfillment.  And as we align ourselves consciously with our desires, there must always be a response in Spirit, the Mind of G-d.

Writing down our desires for the day is definite and we can make them even more definite by writing when we want them accomplished.  Let's take a look at an example that came to me this week ... it is a common phrase ... too common in fact ... "I live from paycheck to paycheck."  This statement in fact, is a statement of faith ... it is believed and accepted as the truth ... and the Law of G-d will validate this belief until it is changed. It can only return to us what we give It.  Dr. Joseph Murphy wrote:  "The law of your mind is the law of belief itself.  What we believe makes us who we are. William James observed that whatever people expect to be true, will be so, irrespective of whether the object of their belief exists in fact. In the West we have made ‘the truth’ our highest value; this motivation, while important, is weak next to the actual power of belief in shaping our lives. Whatever you give your subconscious – false or true, good or evil – it will register as fact."

This belief in "living from paycheck to paycheck" can be changed, effortlessly, by writing our desire for increase in a definite way ... daily:  "My finances, including my paycheck, reflects an increase within the next two weeks.  I accept this and I believe it to be the truth for me, now."  If this is something that you desire, write these words out yourself ... read them and say them to yourself.  These statements can be changed to fit our own personal desires.  We can direct our mind in this way, daily, and let our mind expect to see the increase ... imagine it is so ... and it will be so for us.  As Catherine Ponder writes:  "Dare to be definite about prosperity."

     Believe that the riches and wealth of abundance all around you is not separate and apart from you ... accept your good within your mind.  Write your desires into the Mind of G-d and let this Mind, your Source of all things wonderful and good, respond to you, beginning right now. As the Master Mind Jesus turned to G-d for ALL things, do this for your self and let the Mind that responded to Jesus ... respond to you too.


Keep the faith!
