Thou shalt have no other gods before me. This is the first commandment and a very potent spiritual truth. Somewhere else in the old testament it says that God is a jealous God. I think that man often interprets or visualizes God with a human form and human traits, emotions and failings. But God is Spirit ...the Creator of the universe and I believe the Creator is way beyond human emotions. God is Love.... but it is a Spiritual Love and not a love that involves human fears and insecutities such as jealousy. At this point, my sense of it all is that there is really one Mind or Conciousness and that is the consiousness that created the universe. Because we are part of the creation, we are part of this conciousness.
Referring to God, the Bible says that we live and move and have our Being within God. God/Spirit fills all space...is all wise and all knowing. Because we are that meshed with God, we don't have to go anywhere to find God. Some like to say God is within us. I don't think this means literally that God is contained in a physical body. How can infinite Spirit be contained in such a manner? I do think it means that that if we are still and go within...and listen..."Be still and KNOW that I am God"...that we will have access to all we need. This can mean....access to right ideas and access to "supply" in whatever form we need it. This doesn't mean that we are GOD but that we have access to and can express all the GOOD that God is. As a child I was taught that my reason for Being is to express God's qualities which are spiritual qualities.
Many are observing ....as the article below brings up.....that the more we make gods out of money, sensuality, personalities (such as presidents, rock stars and other material human beings) and the more we trust in matter in general, the more we will find ourselves enslaved by matter. One by one our material props will fail us.... till we realize the truth of being that God is our supply. When we place our trust in personalities and governments, which are temporal and have human failings we are bound to suffer the natural consequences. This is not to say that we don't need food or money or housing but that by Trusting in God and seeking the real and eternal FIRST....ALL the rest shall be added unto us.
