RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses (August 1, 2004)         

         Mark 10:27 - But Jesus looking on them says, "With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God." 

      GOD IS BELIEF.  We find God in our BELIEF IN GOD.  Without BELIEF, God is just a concept ... one that we may understand ... or one that may elude us.  The Master Mind Jesus taught, "it is done unto you as you believe."  If I believe that God can be angry or that God withholds from me ... then I will experience that BELIEF.  If, on the other hand, I believe that God loves me with an ever-lasting love and that I can "ask and receive" whatever Good may be required for today ... then I will experience that BELIEF.

     Our work then, is to cultivate and foster the BELIEFS that create the conditions and circumstances that we desire to experience.  In Religious Science we know that we connect with God in MIND ... MIND being the inlet and outlet of our receptivity and expression of the Divine Mind.  Mind is fluid in Its acceptance and rejections of ideas and thoughts.  The Divine Mind is always responding to us ... but we don't always consciously recognize that this is so.

      Think about what it would be like to be in a conversation with someone where you are attempting to tell them something but ... instead of listening ... they talk incessantly and don't hear a word that you have said.  This is what many people do with God ... they are so busy talking ... and telling God how miserable they are ... telling their friends how miserable they are ... and telling their family how miserable they are ... that they don't take the time to "listen" for the ideas and inspirations that will solve their problems.  The same thing happens with people who are resentful, arrogant, stubborn or defensive ... THEY CANNOT HEAR THE DIVINE through the brick wall they have created in their mind.  This is why we don't "argue for the Truth" ... because we would be talking to a brick wall.

       NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD ... but this doesn't mean anything unless we BELIEVE THAT IT IS SO.  We arrive at a conviction of BELIEF through "experience" ... as I register in my consciousness that this PRINCIPLE OF BELIEF is no different than knowing that 4 x 4 = 16 ... I begin to experience the results of my BELIEF.  Knowing that the results that I experience are subject to MY BELIEFS ... I can begin to foster and nurture the BELIEF that whatever Good I want to experience is possible ... for impossible is an illusion to God ... then I can know that it is an illusion for me as well.  For instance, if I am looking to realize more money in my Life ... I can know that I can draw money into my experience by believing that I can have it ... for the movement of money into my experience has nothing to do with the circumstances and conditions that I am experiencing ... it is TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON MY BELIEFS.  I am only separate and apart from my Good in my mind ... as I use the ONE MIND WHICH IS GOD, I  can draw it into my experience.

      I will always remember and never forget a news article I read about twenty or so years ago when the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was building a new complex in Fairfield, Iowa and he was asked, "where is the money coming from?"  ... he replied simply, "from wherever it is now."  This is the BELIEF that demonstrates ... and what one man/woman can do ... every man/woman can do ... for "It is the Father that Doeth the work," the Master Teacher explained ... my work is to KNOW THAT ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD AND THAT THE SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE IS BUT AN ILLUSION.



And So It Is!
