RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for October 24, 2010 

                      "We cannot compare the philosophy of Jesus with others.  We cannot say he was this or that or something else.  We can only say:  here was a man who found himself inseparable from God, eternal with God, forever in God.  Conscious of his divinity, yet humble as he contemplated the infinite life around him, he spoke from the height of spiritual perception, proclaiming the deathless reality of the personal life, the continuity of the individual soul, the unity of the universal spirit. ... Jesus made heaven and earth meet.  ... Jesus believed in a spiritual truth which gives power over evil.  He affirmed that God's Kingdom is here and now.  His thoughts were so simple that we can easily overlook their profoundness." - Ernest Holmes, Words That Heal Today

      The Master Mind Jesus instructed his disciples to go forth to heal, to prosper, and to bless all who came to them for healing.  The ancient scriptures give examples of the Radical Jesus living his faith and his philosophy; that there is good for all and this good is unlimited.  And most importantly, as he learned himself, the Kingdom of Heaven is within, but we must let go of all that appears to limit us or separate us from this eternal Truth.  

       When we study the life experiences attributed to the Master Mind Jesus, we learn that the first person he healed, was himself.  There is no other way to "know the truth" except to experience it personally.  Does this mean that Jesus was "perfect" when he first began his work to heal others?  No, but he had "perfected" the truth that he knew intellectually to the point of embodying it in his consciousness.  We know this because he demonstrated it through his work.  Before he spoke the words; "for the one who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough. But the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken from him" ... he knew this was a principle and he had proven it to be the truth.  In other words, it is a scientific statement of "cause and effect" and the "law of mind."  It is also the "key" to a wealth consciousness.

     As I wrote previously, Jesus was not "perfect" when he began his healing work, and these words from the Gospel of Matthew reveal this to be true:  Matthew 15:22-28 - "A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me!  My daughter is suffering terribly from demon-possession."  Jesus did not answer a word.  So his disciples came to him and urged him, "Send her away, for she keeps crying after us."  He answered, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel."  The woman came and knelt before him, "Lord, help me!" she said.  He replied, "It is not right to take the children's bread and toss it to the dogs."  "Yes, Lord," she said, "but even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master's table."  Then Jesus answered, "Woman, you have great faith!  Your request is granted."  And her daughter was healed from that very hour."  Although Jesus had embodied his One-ness with G-d, until this moment he had not had the realization that everyone was part of G-d, Infinite Spirit.

     Although Jesus identified as a Jew, he broke the Jewish Sabbath more than once.  This was significant in that it symbolized his break with "man-made religion" in favor of absolute dependence on G-d, Absolute Principle.  He knew that our mind must be free of restrictions to fully express the Spirit and not hindered by man-made religious dogma:  "How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes only from God?"  In other words, we can learn only so much from religion ... what we "must know" we can only learn from G-d.  As Emerson stated:  "That which I am to do best, only my Maker can teach me."  The Master Mind Jesus may not have said what Emerson did, but he proved it to be true through his philosophy and work.

      Jesus did not limit the Spirit's expression of healing through him.  He healed with the power of his mind in tune with the Mind of the Infinite, but it was expressed in various ways; through faith and belief, through the laying on of hands, and in the Gospel of Mark it is written that he "spit in the blind man's eyes" ... and then laid his hands on his eyes.  In one instance the Centurion's servant was healed even though
Jesus never met him.  This healing in absentia, or distance healing, was considered miraculous, but in truth, the spiritual Jesus was using the science of mind knowing that truth known, anywhere, is truth known everywhere.  Jesus didn't have to be present with the Centurion's servant to know that the Presence of G-d was right where he was.  This is why Jesus knew that if he spoke the "word of truth" for anyone who was "receptive" to the truth, that healing would be the result.  These healing methods used by Jesus are still being used today by people of faith and healing practitioners, but it is important to realize that first, the healer must heal themselves, in order for the Spirit to work through them effectively and consistently.

     And now we look at how this is personal of each of us, for the Master Mind Jesus stated, "these things I do and greater things still shall you do."  Can we believe him, or are we intimidated by these words?  If we think clearly we shall see that "these things I do" can be summed up as "Love G-d and love our neighbor as our self" ... our neighbor being everyone that we come into contact with, and don't forget our self.  The Master Mind Jesus loved G-d and loved the Intelligence that he saw reigning Supreme in the Universe, knowing that It Is All G-d.  He said, "see the lilies how they grow" ... they are free of comparisons, free of judgment, free of guilt, free of shame and blame ... free to be what they are.  We can be free too, but we must tune out the noise that surrounds us sometimes, that is, the negative chatter, the comparisons, the guilt, shame and blame nonsense ... and just "BE" who we are.  And "greater things shall you do" ... may really leave us puzzled, unless we remind ourselves that the Radical Jesus' teachings were simple ... so simple that a child could understand them ... but too many of us will look at this statement and think "I can't do greater things than Jesus" ... but, he wasn't telling us to compare our life to his, but to "follow him" ... that is, do as I do ... seek and find, ask and receive ... G-d will guide us just as G-d guided Jesus.  What is it that we want to overcome, or heal, or increase? ... seek the way through silent communion with G-d ... just as Jesus did.  G-d will respond ... if we are serious about getting the answer.

     This is worth repeating:  "That which I am to do best, only my Maker can teach me." The Mind of G-d revealed spiritual principles and profound truths to some of the most unlikely people; Isaiah was a great mystic, but had to preach naked in the street ... Moses stuttered and felt unworthy ... Peter denied Jesus ... the Disciples fell asleep while praying ... Elijah was suicidal ... Job went broke ... and I could go on with this but I won't.  What we want to get from this is that there is no G-d looking for the "perfect man or woman" but through our mind, G-d is seeking to "perfect" that something within us that needs to be made perfect ... because we choose it to be ... and by choosing, as the Master Mind Jesus did, we can do all things and greater things still shall we do.  It is the science of healing and it is available to everyone.


AND SO IT IS!

Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
