RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for October 14, 2007 

                             "I expect lavish abundance every day in every way in my life and affairs.   I specifically expect and give thanks for lavish abundance today." - Catherine Ponder, Dynamic Laws of Prosperity

Life always gives us back what we "give" to It.  And this includes all things in our life; our work, our health, our relationships and our prosperity.  Whatever we "give" through our words, our thoughts and the ideas that we hold about a thing ... becomes the thing for us.  And this is true for our finances as much as it is true for anything else.  We have a relationship with our financial prosperity.  But, often it is not a faithful relationship.  For many of us it is a desperate relationship, or at the least a "strained" relationship.  

      From Deepak Chopra: 
"The possibility of stepping into a higher plane is quite real for everyone. It requires no force or effort or sacrifice. It involves little more than changing our ideas about what is normal."

     Nothing changes until our "attitude about it" changes ... and our attitude about it does not change until we change the ideas that bind us to the condition.  This is why the Master Mind Jesus stated,
"For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath."  In other words, Deepak Chopra is stating the same thing ... we must change our ideas about our prosperity if we want to live on a higher plane of prosperity consciousness.

     Too many people are too easily "convinced" that they do not have a "prosperity consciousness."  But, this is not Truth.  We are "in God and of God" ... and
God does not lack a prosperity consciousness and neither do we.  It is our inherent nature to be prosperous ... to embody abundant living.  And so our work is not to develop a prosperity consciousness, but to "reveal" our prosperity consciousness.  Each experience that we have that contains the "appearance of lack" ... is but our opportunity to "reveal" our prosperity consciousness.  We are called to do this, for to deny our prosperity consciousness is to deny God within us.

     I know some of you are going to ask; if we have a prosperity consciousness then why do we experience lack?  A simple way to understand why, is to think of a mirror covered in dust ... if you look in the mirror you cannot see a clear reflection because it is covered with dust ... but if we clean off the dust, the clear reflection is revealed.  This is what we must do to reveal our prosperity consciousness.  We must realize that our beliefs, thoughts and ideas about it, have blocked it from demonstrating normally and naturally as abundant living.  Our accumulated "dust" so to speak, are the words, thoughts, and ideas that have covered up our acceptance of our prosperity consciousness.  Words like, "I don't have the money," or "I can't afford it," deny our prosperity consciousness.  In Truth we always "have what we need when we need it" ... and if we don't ... then it is not ours to have.  It is just this simple.  And we will find that as we keep faith with our prosperity consciousness, the things that we do not buy, or the things we do not do because we have not demonstrated the money to do them ... pass from our memory very quickly.  But, our recognition of our prosperity consciousness will never fail to benefit us.

     As we work with affirmations and always remember that we have a prosperity consciousness already, we can say with Catherine Ponder,
"I expect lavish abundance every day in every way in my life and affairs.   I specifically expect and give thanks for lavish abundance today.As we speak these words of affirmation, we must always be mindful that we are speaking not only of that which is ours that we see, but that we are speaking of the Un-seen Good that awaits our recognition of it.

Words are powerful when we have the consciousness that backs them up ... and we do!  And as we remember that we have a "prosperity consciousness" ... our words take on authority that support the life we want to live.  Our fidelity to our prosperity consciousness, when we face seeming overwhelming obstacles, empowers us to "reveal" more of it ... in a more powerful way.  In Truth our fidelity to our prosperity consciousness is fidelity to God, the Good.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
