Spiritual Law

in Words

Have you ever noticed how laws of nature work whether you believe in them or not? They are constant, and one can learn to harmoniously work with them or ignorantly dispute against them – to their own betterment or devastation.

I wish young kids would never fall and get hurt, but I don’t curse gravity when they do. I wish a hot stove wouldn’t burn us when we touch it, but I don’t despise heat when that has happened.  Those kinds of things don’t make me question why these laws exist.  They make me wonder how I can use them to keep myself safe and better my life by cooperating with them.  When someone suffers a negative consequence I realize that someone has either ignorantly or accidentally violated these laws.  Mankind has learned to respect these laws and use them for our benefit and protection. We teach these laws to our children. We teach them to revere natural laws because we love them and we want things to be well with them.

I have an underlying point that I want to make, but before I make it I want to show that learning to work with laws of nature has been one of the achievements of the human race. We’ve used these laws to provide power to our homes, provide clean drinking water, in medical science to prolong life, transport us on the ground and through the air, cool and heat our homes, etc, etc. Learning the secrets of natural law can make one rich, healthy, loved, revered, and so on. Resisting these laws will bring about just the opposite.

The point I want to make is that there are not only natural laws governing what we can see. There are spiritual laws that govern what we do not see. As a matter of fact, all natural law is upheld by something unseen. Something we can not feel and see causes gravity to be constant, the speed of light to remain constant, and so on. This unseen law creates all this structure and order that we are in awe of.

To ask the “who, what, when, where, and why”:

  1. What is this unseen law? 
  2. Where did it come from? 
  3. Why does it create and maintain the order of our universe, galaxies, and our planet? 
  4. Who is responsible for this spiritual law? 
  5. When did this law begin to create the structure that we now take so for granted?

Those answers can only be found by first revealing the “who” in those questions. According to the Bible the “who” is God. Many reject His claim as creator, but before one rejects the authorship of a work one might want to listen to the proof that said author gives and their understanding of the details of it’s creation.

I could go into deep detail here of the proofs and insights that an inventor might put forth to demonstrate that they are indeed the author of a work, but I think most are smart enough to make that analogy themselves. Any court of law would hear out such an author that could provide such strong proof, and we should use no less wisdom in hearing the written evidence of One who makes the astounding claim to be the Creator of all that we see and know – including ourselves.

To claim to be the “who” logic demands that One could explain also the “what, when, where, why, and how”. Many scientists offer you their ideas on this subject, but they are incomplete. These ideas are nothing more than theories for the most part. Only God offers solid evidence to those questions, because as the creator He is the only one who can.

1. Who: The Godhead (The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit) created the heavens and the Earth. God created mankind. God created order. God created natural laws. Starting with the first words of the Bible He boldly claims ownership of all that exists. It is without question that He makes this claim. He is the issuer and upholder of spiritual law that maintains all natural law.
2. When: God says specifically that when He did this was in the beginning.  Some might say that’s vague, but we are only able to measure time because of the rotation of the Earth – day and night.  Without the combination of the motion of the earth and light there is no measurement of time.  There is no concept of time without those. So, when these were created we have what God calls the beginning.
3. Why: He made earth for man. He made man in His image (In the image of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. That’s why we are made up of body, soul, and spirit). That’s procreation. He wanted family. He wanted to love, and someone to give that love to.
4. Where: This is answered in the “who”. These spiritual laws came from God.  They came as He spoke.
5. What: Yes, God even answers what spiritual law is. Spiritual law is words that were issued by God. Words spoken by God created, formed, and uphold everything. Words from God, and His kind, govern everything that is seen. Words can change darkness to light, chaos into paradise, facts to truth, barrenness to abundance. Spoken words in agreement with His purpose have innate power, given by the Holy Spirit, to govern God’s creation.

That last point is the purpose in this writing. I want to show that God made man and gave him dominion over the earth – all the works of His hands.

Thou madest him [man] to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet. Psalm 8:6

This dominion is to be exercised, and can only be exercised, just as the Father does – by words.

This spiritual law maintains all natural law. Just as I explained that natural law can be agreed with and used for it’s correct purposes, so can this supreme spiritual law. As a matter of truth, spiritual law supersedes natural law. If one would harmoniously cooperate with spiritual law they could effect every natural thing. Yielding to spiritual law (words) and using it properly could propel mankind to unimaginable accomplishments. Adversely, opposing this law could also pull men into unimaginable depths.

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21

Fortunately for us, God explained in detail this spiritual law, and how to work with it to do the same works that He did. He even sent us the Word made flesh as a living example to follow.

Now what will you do with spiritual law? Will you speak like God and bring order, life, peace, and health into your world? Will you use the God kind of faith that Jesus demonstrated and explained to us? Will you believe in your heart and speak with your mouth? Will you call those things that are not as though they are? Will you bring forth good things out of a good heart with your words? Will you believe, as God does, that you can have what you say?
