RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses for December 5, 2010 

         "I am the Truth," says the Living Christ.  ... The knowledge of Truth comes through the heart by living it.  You must let the Truth inhabit you to know it; and you must inhabit the Truth to understand it.  Truth is Being.  It is not a great quantity of information and ideas.  Truth is Life.  It is the activity of the Eternal Light, the Christ, I Am, Omnipresence. ... You cannot get that in your brain, but you can love it and live it with all your consciousness.  To have your head crammed with knowledge of facts, thoughts, methods, ways, and images, is just to know nothing at all. ... "I am the way, the truth, and the life."  That is not what we call a fact.  It is the Spirit of God.  Living knowledge comes from His Holy Spirit. ... "Give me that knowledge that cometh not by learning," prayed Augustine, as he perceived the true way to know." - H. B. Jeffery, The Principles Of Healing

     The Christ within, that is the "spark of the Divine" within us, is our health, our strength, our confidence, our love, our hope, and our faith.  The Master Mind Jesus gave us the key to find this Christ within ... that is the Power of G-d within each of us.  This key is summed up in two words; I Am.  This "infinite I" within each of us provides for us the way in which we can move through any condition or circumstance that we may desire to transcend.  "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me," we can read in the ancient scriptures.  This "Christ" is not Jesus ... It is infinite and infinitely impossible to be limited in any way, shape or form.

     Religious people; Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims ... by and large identify "the Christ" with the man Jesus ... as do most Atheists.  Yet, the Master Mind Jesus himself stated, "these things I do and greater things still shall you do."  He could say this because he knew that it is the Christ within ... that is, a part of the Divine within each of us, that does all things through us.  Both Jews and Christians view the life of the man Jesus from religious perspectives.  Christians throughout history have believed that Jews were the enemies of Jesus.  Yet, Joseph and Mary were Jews and all the authors of the Bible were Jews ... including the Gospel authors who detailed the life experiences of Jesus.  G-d is Intelligence, not intelligent.  G-d does not favor anyone and is no respecter of persons ... the same laws of the Universe apply to the President as they do to a prisoner ... it is "our use" of the power that G-d has imparted to us that determines the measure of our life abundant.  

        Consciousness is everything according to the Master Mind Jesus.  But, even some of our most successful religious teachers continue to be confused about this; i.e. Joel Osteen stated:  "You can be committed to Church but not committed to Christ, but you cannot be committed to Christ and not committed to church."  This is simply not true.  Being committed to the Christ will often cause us to leave the church and foster the consciousness of being spiritual but not religious as we seek to commune more with the Spirit and live to the guidance of the Spirit, not the dictates of the church.  The Christ within us, at some point will rebel against the limitations of religion.  The Master Mind Jesus is the perfect example of this.  G-d, Infinite Spirit, cannot be discerned by the senses, but by feeling and intuition.  Religions seek to define G-d by the traditions and concepts of the human experience, but the finite can never fully grasp the infinity of the Living Christ.

     "Although the Bible repeatedly refers to the creative power of the Word, men have not dared to think that the creative law is universal and could be taught to any man who would discipline his thoughts and words and center them on God-Mind. Jesus gave His whole attention to God, so much so that He claimed He did not even originate the words that He spoke: they came from the Father. By careful thinking and wholehearted concentration on God, Jesus made such complete union with creative Mind that His body was transformed in the presence of His disciples. He taught that men would eventually reap the reward of every word they uttered. "For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned."  - Charles Fillmore, Jesus Christ Heals

     Spirit revealed to the human mind, as written in the Book of Genesis in both the Bible and the Torah, that we are created in the "image and likeness of God" ... this image and likeness is the "Christ within" ... it is the love, the peace, the joy, the harmony, the beauty, the happiness, the power, and the intelligence of G-d.   It lives in each of us.  It is the very "life" within us.  It can never die for It is an eternal part of G-d.  It is infinitely individualized through All of Life ... through every living thing.   It is this infinite "I" that the Master Mind Jesus referred to when he declared:  "I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life"  In other words, whoever "does what I do" will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life ... that is, the understanding and awareness that the "Christ in me shall live forever."  

         It is this Living Christ that seeks to experience more of the good through us and more and more joy ... but, we must be open and receptive to It.  From the Book of John 16:7 we find these words from the Mystical Jesus: "Nevertheless I tell you the truth: It is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I go, I will send him unto you."  These words tell us that Jesus' plan was for each of us to experience the Living Christ, the Comforter, personally.  No one can do this for us ... not our husbands and wives, our friends and family ... this, we must do within our own hearts and minds.


AND SO IT IS!

Keep the faith!
Rev. Dr. Henry Lee Bates
