Series 2 - Lesson 6 - Annotation 7
Explain fully how this promise is fulfilled: "He shall have whatsoever he saith" (Mark 11:23 A.V.).
7. Man has "whatsoever he saith" regardless of whether he thinks and expresses from the human consciousness or from the Christ consciousness. In reality man is the Word of God made flesh. God creates by means of His Word. Man being like God also forms or produces by the power of his thought-word.
Through ignorance of the Truth, our thoughts and words have very often lacked the realization of the attributes (Ideas) of God, and we have thus made conditions that are not in harmony with God's plan of good. Functioning in human consciousness only, we "form" or "make" structures that have no real foundation, but fortunately these manifestations of inharmony and discord may be taken apart (denial) and reproduced (affirmation) in a higher ideal when we become conscious of the true spiritual pattern upon which to build. Then what man "saith" of the good, he has in manifestation. We must, however, bear in mind that whatever we claim — good, bad, indifferent — by the law of mind action must come into our life. Therefore, all of our Truth study is to train the consciousness to release (denial) that which is less than good, and lay hold of (affirmation) that which is true and good.
