The meaning of "Message" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does when are you going to get the message? mean?
A: For example, imagine if a guy kept asking her out and she always says no or has excuses not to meet him.

he keeps asking and she is getting annoyed. she might say " when are you going to get the message? "

the message in this case is that she does not like him.

we use the expression "when are you going to get the message?" when we think that we have given the person enough hints about what we really mean. it can be about anything.
Q: What does get the message across mean?
A: it means getting someone else to understand the meaning of what you are saying.
Q: What does I'll pass on the message. mean?
A: The message is 伝言...
伝言を伝う かな
Q: What does You are not supposed to reply immediately after getting my message. mean?
A: No problem. :-)
I wouldn't use your version in that case then because it sounds almost annoyed and conveys a different meaning.
"You don't need to reply immediately after getting my messages" or "Please feel free to take your time when replying to my messages" should work, though. :-)
Q: What does approve this message mean?
A: It is often used when a politician or political group has a TV advertisement and they say that the person or group has officially approved the TV advertisement.

So at the end of the TV advertisement, you may hear the politician say something like: "I am Senator Jane Doe and I approve this message"

In this case, to "approve" means to officially "authorize", "sign off on", "permit", "allow", etc.

It could also be used in other contexts, like email. "Do you approve [sending] this [email] message?"
