Spiritual justice: rendering to every one that which is his due equity his trust, that while justice means merely the doing what positive in the law of God demands, equity means the doing of what is fair and right in every separate case and individual according to the scriptures. See: Law
Spiritual Justification: judicial act of God, by which he pardons all the sins of those who believe in Christ, and accounts, accepts, and treats them as righteous in the eye of the law, conformed to all its demands. It is the act of a judge and not of a sovereign. The law of God is not relaxed or set aside, but is declared to fulfilled in the strictest sense; so the person justified is declared to be entitled to all the advantages and rewards arising from perfect obedience to the law of God. The act of faith which thus secures our justification secures also at the same time our sanctification and thus the doctrine of justification by faith does not lead to licentiousness Good works, while not the ground, are the certain consequence of justification; Rom. 1:17; 3:25-26; Rom. 4:20-22; Phil. 3:8-11; Ga. 2:16; 2 Co. 5:21.

Spiritual Meals – are at the present day “eaten from a round table little higher than a stool, guests sitting cross-legged on mats or small carpets in a circle, and dipping their fingers into one large dish heaped with a mixture of boiled rice and other grain and meat. But in the time of our Lord, and perhaps even from the days of Amos (6:4, 7), the foreign custom had been largely introduced of having broad couches, forming three sides of a small square, the guests reclining at ease on their elbows during meals, with their faces to the space within, up and down which servants passed offering various dishes, or in the absence of servants, helping themselves from dishes laid on a table set between the couches.” Geikie’s Life of Christ.

Spiritual milk: Hebrew halabh, “new milk”, milk in its fresh state Judg. 4:19. It is frequently mentioned in connection with honey Ex.13:5; Josh 5:6 Isa. 7:15, 22; Jer 11:5. Sheep and goats and camels as well as cows, are made to give their milk for the use of man. Milk is used figuratively as a sign of abundanceIt is also a symbol of the rudiments of doctrine 1 Cor 3:2; He. 5:12-13, and of the unadulterated word of God 1 Pe. 2:2. Heb. hem’ah, always rendered “butter” in the Authorized Version. It means “butter,” but also more frequently “cream,” or perhaps, as some think, “curdled milk,” such as that which Abraham set before the angels and which Jael gave to Sisera. In this state milk was used by travellers. If kept long enough, it acquired a slightly intoxicating or soporific power. This Hebrew word is also sometimes used for milk in general.
