RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses (August 8, 2004)         

         IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS (John 14:2) (SOM pg. 479) 

      "In my Father's house are many mansions."  This world, with all its wonders, is not the only one that we shall inhabit.  There are many others and we shall inhabit each in time.  If this life were the only life, Jesus would have told His followers so.  He held out no false promises, never deceived.  He spoke only the Truth.

       "I go to prepare a place for you."  What a more beautiful thought than that those who go before shall be there when we arrive!  There is no doubt, only an expansion of the soul, an enlargement of the experience.  But Thomas, who was a disciple, said that he did not know where Jesus was going nor did he know the way.  Jesus answered, "I Am the way, the truth and the life."  Again He is referring to the individual "I" the son of the eternal "I AM."  This son is the way to the Father.  We approach reality through our own natures and through no other source.  "No man/woman cometh unto the Father but by me."  God is within and it is here that we meet Him.  The inward gaze alone can reveal the Father.


     "He that hath seen me hath see the Father."  Many think, from this statement, that Jesus was claiming to be God, but such was not the case.  God is the invisible Life Essence of all that is, the Intelligent Energy running through all.  This Life we feel but do not see.  We see only what It does, never the Thing Itself.

       Life manifests Itself through the individual.  Therefore, when one manifests goodness and purity, he/she is revealing the Father.  This is what Jesus meant when He said, "He that hath seen me hath seen the Father."

        He said that His words were the words of God.  As all forms of energy return again into their source, so the word of Truth is the word of God, no matter who speaks it, or when it is spoken.  Man/woman reveals, but does not absorb, the Divine Nature.

         "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he/she do also."  It could not be otherwise.  The nature of Reality was not exhausted in the man Jesus, but made manifest through His life and works.  We are to do likewise, and what we ask in the name (which is our own name) believing in the Father which is God, and in the son (daughter) , which is ourselves, we shall receive.  In this way, the Father is glorified in the Son (Daughter).  - The Science of Mind

          The Faces of the Fallen are the Faces Of God.  It can be no other way.  Infinite Spirit individualized in human form.  The Master Mind Jesus shouted, "Don't ye know that ye are God's?"  We are living spirits expressing the One Infinite Life which Is God ... our life is not ours, but God's.  We have been told that we are to "love one another" ... to know that when you "see me you see the Father" ... together let us love one another ... and let's begin by praying for the families; the mothers, the fathers, grandparents, sisters and brothers, wives, husbands, and children ... of those who have fallen in Iraq ... and let's not just pray for these beautiful men and women of the United States armed forces ... let us pray for their souls which have moved over to the Other Side ... graduated into New Life ... a new adventure ... to another mansion in our Father's House.

And So It Is!

Maximum Love
