RevBates.tv Global - Weekly Message To The Masses (December 19, 2004)         

       From the Holy Bible ... John 8:12 - Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, "I Am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.  John 8:58 -  Jesus said unto them, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM."  Exodus 3:14 - And God said unto Moses, "I AM THAT I AM" and he said, "Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."  Isaiah 41:10 - "Fear thou not; for I AM with thee: be not dismayed; for I AM thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

Isaiah 42:8 - "I AM the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images."  Isaiah 45:5 - "I AM the LORD , and there is none other; thou shalt have no savior but me.  I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me."

         The statements from scripture above were to give us a greater understanding of the Teachings of Jesus ... the "I AM Consciousness" ... the Consciousness of the "Christ" within you and me.  All the mystics who have come after Jesus have acknowledged that He embodied the "Christ Consciousness" to a greater degree than anyone before Him or after Him.  This "Christ within" that Jesus spoke "from" is the very Image and Likeness of God within all of us.  As we acknowledge God within our self and within others and recognize that God Is demonstrating "through" us as the "Christ" ... the "I AM" authority and dominion ... we can speak our words ... imagine our goals fulfilled ... and "see with the eyes of God" ... the beyond the obstructions to the Un-Obstructed, God, Infinite Presence.

        It is this seeing "beyond the visible" to the Infinite Invisible that we identify with as we identify with the Christ within us, as did Jesus.  The Master Mind Jesus permeated His consciousness with the awareness of Omnipresence, Omnipotence and Omniscience ... All-Present ... All-Powerful ... All-Knowing ... God.  Within Omnipresent Good ... there is none other ... no illness, no poverty, no sadness ... no shame or guilt.  We "repent" of these things as we "acknowledge and recognize" that we are "Life" within Omnipresent God ... or Good ... no different from a fish in the ocean ... the fish may not understand the immensity of the ocean ... but nonetheless it is in it.  We may not be able to fathom the Infinite-ness of Omnipresence with our human understanding ... but as we go within and acknowledge the "Christ" within us ... our understanding automatically becomes more expansive and we begin a greater realization of our relationship with God, Infinite Presence.

Ernest Holmes writes in the Science of Mind, that it is not easy to turn from illness to its opposite ... to turn from poverty to prosperity ... for the experience feels so very real ... but for those of us who can do this ... we can heal ourselves and heal others ... for this is what Jesus did ... all the while knowing "I, of mine own self can do nothing" ... this is the Christ Consciousness ... this knowing that it is always God working "through" us ... for us ... and as us.  This knowing must be cultivated, fostered and nurtured until it permeates our consciousness ... until this "knowing" becomes our habitual reaction to all that we see and all that we experience.  This "knowing" heals, prospers and blesses instantaneously ... often miraculously ... and always Divinely ... and this is the greatest lesson we can learn from the Teachings and the experience of Jesus ... His reflection of God in All-things that He said ... and all things that He did.

And So It Is!
