Ever wonder about Jesus and the law of attraction? I know that it is something I have wondered about for a while now. It seems that a lot of people using the law of attraction nowadays are using it for their own benefits.
I’m talking about getting more money, having a huge house, being popular. Those kinds of things. But way back in biblical times, the law of attraction was used in a little different way. Where today a lot of the law of attraction circles around materialism, back long ago it was based more around being spiritual.
In my opinion, Jesus was the best teacher to teach the law of attraction. He didn’t come right out and say he was teaching it but, if you really dig into it, you’ll see that there is a link between the two.
In this article, I’ll pull out some biblical sayings that directly link with the law of attraction. I’m not saying that it is true or that you should believe in it because I’m a Christian but, I do suggest you read all of this article to make up your own mind.
Let’s get started.
“Ask and it shall be given unto you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh, the door shall be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
The law of attraction is really simple. It says that every action has an opposite reaction. This means that if you want something to happen you have to be in a mood to visualize already having it happen. This is also called the law of attraction because every time you are in a mood to attract something, you’re attracting it in your life.
So, when Jesus says “Ask and it shall be given unto you,” he’s saying that as long as you’re believing and visualizing for something to happen, it will automatically start happening.
“For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door shall be opened.” Luke 11:9
This was said by Jesus before the woman with the issue of blood came up to him (see 4:23). The verse shows us that, as long as we ask for something, it will happen. We could see this idea in action when the woman with the issue of blood was healed.
She came up to Jesus and said, “If I touch but his clothes I shall be made whole.” When she touched him she was healed (see Mark 5:28-29; Matthew 9:21). She asked for her healing and she received it. This is what we should be doing today.
Sadly, too many people are doing the opposite. They’re not believing in anything. But, with a lot of things, you have to believe in them first before they will happen to you. That’s how the law of attraction works. Yes, sometimes things do happen to us without us even knowing that we caused it. But for the most part, we have to make our own luck and believe in something first before it happens to us (ex: lottery).
“For whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.” Luke 12:48
Jesus is talking about possessions here. He’s saying that as long as you have something in your life, that’s what you will experience. This is direct teaching on the law of attraction because you can only create what is already in your life.
And, he’s saying that if we take away someone else’s possession from them, they will lose it too. For example, if I steal someone’s money, then they will not have money anymore. In a way, we are connected to everything that isn’t us and the negative vibrations flow back to us too (ex: thoughts).
So, Jesus is teaching here the law of attraction without even mentioning it. He just shows how everything that happens to us starts from within us.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mark 10:30
We all know that Jesus is teaching on the money here. But, I believe he’s also teaching about the law of attraction. He was talking about how when we were younger we could eat out with no problem until we got older. Now, even when we get older, there is a lot more for us to worry over like bills and stuff. So, now it is more important to find jobs that can take care of us, being happy with our lives, and so forth. Reading this verse in a context like this shows how every material thing comes from within ourselves too.
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.” Mark 2:19-20
This was a big issue in Jesus’s time. When you get married, you’re supposed to fast for your new partner. But if you have children, then your fasting duties are pretty much over. But what does Jesus say? He says that as long as we’re with our child or spouse then we don’t have to fast at all.
The law of attraction is the same way. As long as you act as if your spouse or child will eventually be with you, you will get them for real. If you live a life that makes you happy and that makes them happy, then they will get back to you too. But if not, then they’re not going to stick around.
“For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.” Matthew 10:42 Jesus is teaching here on the law of attraction again. He’s saying that whoever gives us something in our name (e.g. in the name of Christ), that person will get back everything. For example, if someone helps us out with money or anything else in general, they’ll get their reward back. So it’s not about earning or giving back something to Jesus.
There are so many instances of this message throughout the Bible. The disciples of Jesus were known for helping people out for free and this was considered by many to be their call from God. Jesus told them to use their free time to help others for the good of others and not just because they wanted it for themselves. So, this verse shows that the best way we can use our time is to help other people who are also involved in the law of attraction.
The law of attraction is a very simple concept that if used correctly can lead to amazing results. It can also be very simple. If you think about it, it’s difficult for anyone to do anything for even one second without attracting something into their life as well. However, if we understand how everything is a product of our mind then this becomes much more straightforward.
