RevBates.tv Global - The Way to a Wonderful Life Message for November 27, 2011 

            ”And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.  For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” - attributed to Jesus, Luke 11:9-10, Holy Bible, KJV

           "Prayer is always the solution, for God is "... a very present help in times of trouble." [Psalm 46:1]  You are instructed to "pray believing" and you will receive.  If this is so - and daily proofs surround us - then prayer is the greatest force in all the world. ... Prayer is contacting, communicating, and aligning your thought with the Infinite Intelligence which responds to the nature of your thought and belief.  Prayer will bring forth whatever you want and need in your life, if you conform to the laws of your mind purposefully, sincerely, and righteously.  Prayer constantly is bringing about the seemingly impossible and healing the so-called incurable.  In the history of man [human race], there is no conceivable problem that at some time has not been solved by prayer." - Joseph Murphy, The Amazing Laws of Cosmic Mind power, 1965
 [Psalm 46:1 - "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."]

         "Abandon all varieties of mundane religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reactions. Do not fear." - Bhagavad-Gita 1500 BC

      As we approach the mystical holidays of Hanukkah and Christmas, prayer has become present in my mind even more often than usual.  Throughout this ministry it has been my consistent mission to teach people to pray, and to pray often.  So many of us wait until we have an urgency or an emergency before we turn to our Maker in prayer ... and for so many of us, this causes us to face struggles that are unnecessary.  As we can note from the statement taken from the Bhagavad-Gita above, prayer has been considered essential for a healthy mind, body and spirit, for thousands of years.  From the Bhagavad-Gita to the Torah to the Bible, prayer has been woven through the mystery of our relationship with G-d, as we have evolved our spiritual awareness.  

     Both Jesus and Krishna before him, taught that we are to turn to G-d always ... first with love for G-d, and then for the blessings of the Spirit.  Yet, too often religions have separated us from the unconditional Love that G-d has for us, by inventing rules, regulations, and dogma that create doubt, guilt, shame and fear in our hearts and minds.  In the Bhagavad-Gita we can read, "Do not fear." ... and the Master Mind Jesus stated, "Fear not little flock for it is the Father's good pleasure to give to you."  We are told we are born in "sin" and even those who tell us there is no "sin" will tell us we "don't have the consciousness."  And if we believe either of these "false ideas" we have separated ourselves from G-d in our spirit.  In the scripture we can read in the Book of Habakkuk 1:13 "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity ..."  This is Truth revealed, but not necessarily understood then, nor by very many people now.  Yet, it is very simple, there is no G-d of reward and punishment, but instead Divine-Intelligence has created a universal Law of Cause and Effect, or as Jesus stated, a Law of Sowing and Reaping.

     So, now that we understand that G-d is always available and the Laws of G-d are always supporting us in our Good ... "just surrender unto Me" ... and in practice, this means to "depend on G-d, not person, place or thing" ... and to "surrender" to that, in our mind, that fosters joy, happiness, love, peace and harmony.  And this is the basis of the radical Jesus' teaching,
"ask, and it shall be given you" ... and we all know these words, but some of us have failed to fully understand them due to the translation of the language of Jesus into the languages that we understand.  In the language of Jesus, "ask" means to "claim" ... it other words, we must "name it and claim it" if we are to receive it.  This not something new for those of you who have been following this ministry, but for many people it is a new idea that they have yet to realize.  

      To understand the process of "claiming and receiving" we can recognize how we feel when we claim that which is ours.  Do we feel a sense of ownership?  Now, that we "have it" ... has "having it" changed us?  Now that we "have it" does it still hold the same level of appeal to us?  Are we willing for everyone to have the same thing if they want it?  Has "having it" affected our relationship with G-d, our Provider in a positive way?  Do we still want to expand the good that we have received?  The answers to these questions are very important for whatever it is that we have "received" must provide an affirmative answer to all these questions ... in other words, "YES" ... to every question.

     Let's go back to "basics" and realize that as we "claim" the good that is ours to experience by right of "desire" [of the Father], we must be steadfast and immovable in our faith that it is "ours" to "claim" ... in other words, we must feel this increased good, is a natural progression of our spiritual awareness to experience "having it."  When the radical Jesus stated, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" ... we must believe that this "I" is within us too ... and know that It is seeking to express life more abundantly through us ... enough to share and to spare.


Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
