"Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:"(Exodus 20:4)
The second commandment is a more broad covenant of the 1st commandment. In this chapter, God gave a guide line to man on what kind of other god they must not worship. We are not gonna discuss the literal meaning of it but the spiritual meaning of the second commandment of Spiritual the law.
When God said, you should not make an image or a look-a-like of God under the heaven and beneath the sea, it means that you should not act as a God who always want to be popular and praise or idolized by people. Remember that God is a jealous God. Beware if you want people to follow you and serve you because you are very popular in front of them. If you think that this is you, then you fall under the second spiritual law.
"Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;"(Exodus 20:5)
"And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. "(Luke 16:15)
"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."(Romans 1:21-23)
So if you are dreaming to become the most popular man on earth and an idol of the people, think twice, read the Holy Scripture and understand the second spiritual law.
