Spiritual and Physical Law (of Prosperity) Part 1 – Kenneth Copeland

We  must understand that there are laws governing every single thing in existence. Nothing is by accident.

There are laws of the world of the spirit, and there are laws of the world of the natural.

The laws of the world of the natural govern our activities in this natural, physical world. We  don’t float; we walk. If the law of gravity were not in action, we would float. These physical laws can be manipulated. For instance, the law of gravity is used when flying an airplane, but it is superseded by another physical law, the law of lift. When you put the law of lift into operation, you can fly, but you must know something about the law of gravity in order to use the law of lift.

You don’t do away with the law of gravity; you just supersede it with a higher law. These are natural, physical laws, and they govern this natural, physical world.


We  need to realize that the spiritual world and its laws are more powerful than the physical world and its laws.

Spiritual law gave birth to physical law. The world and the physical forces governing it were created by the power of faith—a spiritual force. God, a Spirit, created all matter, and He created it with the force of faith. Hebrews 11:3 says,  “…the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

The law of gravity would be meaningless if gravity were not a real force. Faith is a spiritual force, a spiritual energy, a spiritual power. It is this force of faith which makes the laws of the spirit world function. When the force of faith is put to work, these laws of the spirit function according to the way God says they will. Romans 8:29 says,  “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”


There are two functional laws in the world of the spirit.

One, the law of sin and death, was put into operation by Adam when he disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden.

The other, the law of the Spirit of life, was put into operation by Jesus Christ at His Resurrection. The law of the Spirit of life is the master law under which we operate as children of God. It supersedes the law of sin and death and faith causes it to function. There are certain elements which, when combined, will bring forth the result God intends.
