Spiritual Meaning Of Words

Hi again B____,

As you become more familiar with God’s Word, you will become aware of the fact that virtually every word of scripture has both a positive and a negative application. The word ‘lion’ is in one place a type of Satan “seeking whom he may devour.” In another verse it is “the Lion of the tribe of Judah.” But in both cases it is a devouring lion. Christ will devour His enemies just as surely as Satan devours our flesh. So while the word ‘lion’ can describe both Christ and Satan, its meaning is single. A ‘lion’ in scripture is a devourer.

‘The lamb’ can and does refer both to Christ and to His lambs.

1Jn 4:17 Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

This verse is worthy of much meditation.

Even so ‘leaven’ is always a symbol for corruption. Yes, even in the parable of the three loaves. The ‘kingdom of heaven is like unto’ the corrupted churches of Rev 2-3. The kingdom of heaven is like a man who goes into a far country and lets His vineyard out to evil and corrupt men.

Keep digging. The deep waters below the surface are much cleaner and much healthier that the waters at the top. Isaac [“We brethren, as Isaac…”] dug wells and the uncircumcised Philistines would always fill those wells up. That is because the Philistines, like today’s churches, were indeed ‘in the land’ but without the benefit of circumcision.

I hope this is of some help to you.
