The seventh commandment in Exodus 20:13 says “Thou shalt not kill.”
And then expanded upon in Leviticus 19:18 “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.”
Philippians 2:3-4 “[Let] nothing [be done] through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.”
1 Peter 5:2-3, 5 “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight [thereof], not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over [God's] heritage...

If we continue on with this unusual interpretation of Genesis, where Genesis Chapter 1 is seen as summary of the entire Bible with the idea that “ye are Gods” (Psalm 82); then we are the God(s) in Genesis 1.
Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Genesis 2:4-5 “These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.”
We create the heaven (our upper consciousness) and earth (our lower...

The Bible is a complex work of literature written long ago by ancient people that appear to know more about the human condition than we do today. The first Chapter of Genesis appears to summarize a type of progress of the human soul after man is created as a “god” in Genesis Chapter 3. The entire Bible seems to then go on to describe in more detail the plights of man through allegorical stories, where Genesis Chapter 1 is simply a summary of all of it.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
Genesis 5:1-2 “This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of ...

Genesis 1:1 through 2:3 appear to be a summary of the entire Bible, and it also seems to be an introduction to the entire book. As the Bible moves forward, it builds upon and explains in more detail the first chapters of Genesis.
Viewing Genesis 1 as a summary and introduction to the Bible helps clear up the seeming contradictory nature of the two creation stories in this book. One story is based on the “LORD God” (single God) and his interaction with Adam in the Garden of Eden and the other is based on “God” (plural Gods) working for six days and then resting on the seventh day. Both of the stories are meant to be understood spiritually and allegorically. They both represent the making of “man&...

Spiritual Law Number 6. Our internal Father and Mother “produce” us, therefore “Honour your father and mother”; because we reap what we sow, within us.
Exodus 20:12 “Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”
Honour means to be heavy and not take lightly and to lift up. But honour also simply means honor, so you give them due respect.
To interpret the scripture spiritually, our father and mother are within us and they represent something inside of our psyche.
Our internal parents create our “life” compared metaphorically to how our physical parents produce our physical body.
Matthew 18:3 “And said, Verily I ...

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 ...
