RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for July 26, 2009 

                      "Suppose the problem is one of supply (money).  The person has a false belief of stringency.  We do not treat that money will pour into the life of this person even though that is what he wants, and we want him to have it.  ... in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus was dealing with deep, underlying beliefs.  When he came to the subject of supply, he admitted that the people's desire for food and clothing was legitimate, but he tried to show them that if they would seek the Giver, the gifts would naturally flow. ... The Kingdom of God, so often mentioned by Jesus and the ancient seers, is the consciousness of the oneness of God and man, and God's pouring into man all of His abundance.  This Kingdom is sought by breaking free from the mass view, constantly lifting our thought to its highest levels, and seeing God as never reluctant to grant our desires, but rather ever seeking to express a more abundant life through us."  -  Dr. Frederick Bailes, Basic Principles of the Science of Mind

       The Master Mind Jesus' statement referred to by Dr. Bailes, was bold, and it can be found in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 6:25Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?   26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?   27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?   28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:   29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

      Very few people have truly embodied this particular teaching of Jesus, because in the physical, it appears to be beyond our reach.  Our physical needs are so demanding on our human nature that, for most of us, it seems almost foolish to consider otherwise.  But, what one woman or man can do, every woman or man can do ... and the mystics have proven this principle time and again.  The Master Mind Jesus proved this principle so steadfastly and consistently, that thousands of books have been written to either confirm that he did, or deny that he did.  The question for us, is how much are we willing to trust in G-d to provide for us?  The principle, is absolute ... but not out of reach.

      Most of us know, that G-d-consciousness is by degree ... in other words, we can learn to develop this absolute faith and trust in G-d to provide for us ... by degree.  We begin by placing our faith and trust in G-d by affirming a certain good that we desire to experience ... and we do it again, and again, and again ... until we develop within our consciousness a greater faith and trust in G-d.  It is up to us to realize this personal relationship with G-d that is available to each and every one of us.  By taking the time to "recognize" this personal relationship with G-d, we also make prosperity and all things good personal to us as well.  And as we do this, we nurture and foster a prosperity personality ... that's right ... a personality that is confident, poised, and convinced that G-d provides for us in whatever way our needs require.  For some of us, this may be our daily bread, that is food for our body and our soul ... both of these are necessary for us to live a faith-filled life.  For others of us, our daily bread may be financial increases in our stock portfolios, as this gives us a greater sense of being provided for by G-d, because lack of food for our body has never been an issue for us.  And so when we see G-d's abundance reflected in our stocks, we have a greater confidence that this Intelligence Greater than us, provides more and more good, through us; by guiding us intuitively to those stocks that will increase our good.

     When we look at the words of Dr. Bailes and also the words attributed to the Master Mind Jesus, we can clearly see that both are speaking of the Omniscience of G-d; Infinite Intelligence.  It is All-Knowing, which is why Jesus could be certain that G-d would respond to him, and know what to do, and how to do it.  Jesus connected to the "result" in his mind, and left the details to this All-Knowing-ness of G-d to manifest the results in the physical.  In the science of mind, we understand this as the working of Love and Law; that is, faith activates the Law of Mind, and Love (G-d) makes the way possible.  Both Love and Law are necessary for us to be at peace with the results that are made manifest in our experiences.  Law without Love, is edging G-d out (ego), and even though we may get the results that we seek, we may also find ourselves losing it.  A good example, and I have stated this often, are people who win the state lotteries; many winners end up losing their winnings in some way or another.  When we "know" that G-d is the "Giver" ... the only "Giver" ... then we can know with certainty and confidence that what we have been given, is ours to use to increase the good in the world for ourselves and for others.  It is this certainty and confidence in G-d that permeates the consciousness of those who possess a prosperity personality.

        We can begin to develop a prosperity personality by affirming that we have faith and confidence in G-d to provide for us ... then, we must ask for something by claiming that it is ours now ... so that G-d, the Giver, can give not just the thing we ask for, but a greater sense of confidence and assurance that G-d will provide for us all things necessary for us to live a glorious and wonderful life filled with the experiences of our choosing.  This is the personality that the Master Mind Jesus possessed; absolutely confident that G-d would respond to him, always and in all ways:  "All that the Father hath is mine."  And yours and mine too!

AND SO IT IS!

Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
