Hebrews 4:9-11 “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his. Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”
Psalm 16:9 “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.”
Romans 8:24 “For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.”
The fifth of the “ten commandments” in Exodus 20 also tells us to rest from our own works.
Exodus 20:8-11 “Remember...

Phil 4:8-9 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.”
2 Corinthians 10:5 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”
These verses tell ...

Spiritual Law number 2 leads right into law number 3, because they have similar concepts.
Exodus 20:4-6 “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
This commandment in Exodus warns us of iniquity if we bow down to a “graven” image. But what is a graven image? The graven image needs to be ...

The first commandment in Exodus 20:2 says “I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.” Remember, spiritually interpreted this refers to our ability to be released from bondage by means of our understanding of the Law.
The second “commandment” in Exodus 20:3 says “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” This commandment can also be understood spiritually for the internal man.
Earlier the concept of “Ye are God” was discussed. It may help to go back and read that. When man ate of the tree of Knowledge he became a “god”. But remember, when our eyes are “opened” we also ...

Job 42:3-4 “Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.”
How do we get answers without first having knowledge? Admit you don’t know. Ask God for answers and he will give us knowledge about it so we will know and have direction.
Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
Our own thoughts and understanding can sometime bring doubt and uncertainty into the mind. This causes us to be divided in our interest and indecisive in what we want rather than fully ...

John 8:31-32 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
There is a Law continually at work. The Law is a type of “Law of the Universe”. This Law is hidden the word, including the words of the Bible, for us to find. If we understand this Law we begin the process of freedom; freedom from the false laws. When we truly understand this Law, there is no way we will not believe it because it becomes truth to us, and faith in that which is understood will set you free.
Mark 4:11 “And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: ...

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.”
1Corinthians 7:23 “Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.”
Ephesians 6:6 “Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;”
These scriptures explain that we may think that we are our own, and therefore serve ourselves and our own ideals, however, it says we are to be servants to God not to men or to ourselves for that matter. We can do the will of our selves ...

The two sides of the heart or the “double mind” is another way the Bible describes “our own two eyes” verses the “eye of God”.
Proverbs 4:23 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
Proverbs 15:13 “A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.”
Proverbs 16:9 “A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps.”
Proverbs 19:21 “There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.”
The heart can influence us according to the Bible scriptures above. The heart wants things...

Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.”
Colossians 1:27 “To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:”
1 John 4:5-7 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
The eye of the Lord that guides us, spoken ...

The Bible is full of symbolic representations. It uses the concepts in the physical world to represent something in the spirit. Money, treasure, riches, etc. are no different. The Bible uses these as tangible concepts to represent something much more, something deeper into the spirit.
Romans 11:33 ” O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom andknowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!”
Proverbs 23:23 “Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.”
The tangible concepts of the world are an allegory which represents how our mind operates. The mind is compared to the physical world. The riches or money in the world ...
