Mind not high things. Be not high minded x2.

Romans 11:20 - 22 (KJV): Be not highminded:
Be not highminded, but fear:
For if God spared not the natural branches, [take heed] lest he also spare not thee.
Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in [his] goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

Romans 12:16 - 17 (KJV): Mind not high things:
[Be] of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things,
but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

Recompense to no man evil
for evil
. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

1Timothy 6:17 (KJV): Be not higminded:
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy

2Timothy 3 (KJV): from such turn away; for
"highminded" is listed among "unholy" things:

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters,
proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce,
despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded,
lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

What is highminded (high mindedness)? Allegorically it is lawminded (law mindead).
Highminded is often simply defined as proud or haughty. But I noticed both "proud" and "highminded" are listed among "unholy" things in 2Timothy 3 we're told to "from such turn away". This caused me to look further into the allegoric meaning of "highminded". I found highminded is not only similar to double minded: James 1:8 & 4:8, but it also seems to describe left and right sides: division of plural divided heavens "on high", including the new high priest standing at the right hand of GOD (LORD, Majesty) on high, which is Law of Law or Grace; Since His Grace is merciful only: Luke 6:36, not both merciful and vengeful. The will of God oft stated in OT & NT is I will have mercy, and not sacrifice; Which is to allegory say: I will have grace, and not law, when studied out. For in Matthew 9:13 it's notably given as a "go" learn what Hosea 6:6 meaneth.

            The Two Gods Allegory: Law (God on high) and Grace (higher God):
        Higher God: Grace: God our Father in heaven: higher than the heavens: higher
        God on high: Law: The Majesty in the plural divided L/R heavens on high: high
           Be not highminded x2: Romans 11:20; 1Timothy 6:17. Mind not high things: Romans 12:16.
Whosoever of you are justified by law (high); ye are fallen from grace (higher): Galatians 5:4.
              For law vs law is as loser vs loser; And grace of laws vs grace is still division, and not peace.
              Peace is above the sides wars of law vs law and laws vs grace have side effects to both sides.
              Christ is the end of the law: thereby the end of such law vs law and of laws vs grace divisions.

"Higher than the heavens" is "above" such high things are high mindedness
Above this L/R division (unrest) and not peace (rest) of the God & Son "on high" is "God our Father" in a unified "heaven" above: "higher than the heavens", which is obviously Grace. Galatians 5:4 notes if justified by the law (on high), then you're fallen from grace (higher) to law (on high); And if fallen (bewitched) then Christ (is the end of the law) is of no effect to you. It's also noted in Hebrews 10:31 that it's a fearful thing to fall (from grace to law) into the (plural) "hands" of the living God: Law. So if Law still be the living God instead dead testator: Hebrews 9, then it's perilous times: 2Timothy 3. But perilous times notably occur in "last days" (plural), not "last day" (singular). It's now the third day is the seventh day is the last day.

Mind not high things: Romans 12:16
What are the "high" things we're told to mind not?
                - the BIGGIE is GOD on high; Called the LORD and Majesty on high
                  (the GOD on high is awful lawful; And the day of the LORD is darkness, not light)
                - another biggie is new high priest: Christ Jesus (reverse of JC): Heb 3
                  (Christ: the end of law: glorified not himself to be made an high priest: Heb 5:5)
                - the Passover Sabbath day: which is called an high day: John 19:31
                  (Let no man judge you... in respect of an holyday of the new moon: Col 2:16)
                      - sacrifice: (slaughter, bloodshed) occurs in the high place: 1Samuel 9:2
                  (will of God to do prior to receive the promise is I will have mercy, and not sacrifice)
                - punishment: to the host of the high ones that are on high: Isaiah 24:21
                  (we are delivered from the law: Rom 7:6; And thereby from wrath: 1Thess 1:10; 5:9)
                - Bamah: the high place whereunto ye(do err) go: Ezekiel 20: 28-31
                  (Bamah: high place of idolatrous worship, polluted: whoredom, abominations: laws)
                - Divisions: Law vs Law and Law vs Grace, which occur in high places
                  (God is the author of grace and peace[rest], not of confusion, nor of divisions[unrest])
                - Captivity Captive: captured again occurs from on high in Ephesians 4:8
                  (objective isn't captivity, but liberty: Isaiah 61:1 & deliverance to captives: Luke 4:18)
                - Spiritual Wickedness: is what occurs in high places in Ephesians 6
                  (the law is spiritual, but it's spiritual wickedness, spiritual abuse, spiritual perversion)

Be not highminded: Rather "from such turn away"
Romans 11:20 ... 1Timothy 6:17 ... 2Timothy 3

High minded is similar to being puffed up with law knowledge, as if being lion of Judah prideful, rather than being edified up and exhorted up higher by charity: grace knowledge. Of the two sorts of knowlege to biblically compare and contrast: Law knowlege and Grace knowledge, it's notably Law knowlege that is both "ready to vanish": Hebrews 8:13 and "shall vanish": 1Corinthians 13:8. The reason charity(grace knowledge) never faileth nor vanishes is because charity(grace) thinketh no evil(law). Charity is also notably to be put on above forgiving one another by law, for true forgiveness is only plausible by abolition of the law, since law imputed sin also imputes unpardonable sin, and law is also the strength of sin's death sting. So as long as highminded law is given place, a high place, there'll continue to be sinners, unpardonable sin both here and hereafter, and a death sting. Hence we are exhorted to give no place to the devil(law), rather than to struggle or wrestle with it and more often than not lose the battle. Eg: I fought the law and the law won. It's better to flush law as dung rather than fight it, which gives it strength, to apply a death sting to you. Allegorically law is biblically "am I", and grace is "I am". So it is allegorically Pauline written "when I am (grace) weak, then am I (law) strong". For law hind-ers grace, makes it no more grace, rather grace + law ends bad, as bad as
blessed + cursed = accursed, and as bad as life + death is as saved + destroyed after, which is as bad as life + death = dead end.

Wickedness is what occurs in high places in Ephesians 6: 12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

So then, be not highminded, mind not high things, also speaks also of mind not wickedness: laws.

When a bible study is done about wickedness, it seems to reveal the root of wickedness is the law.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ with you all. Amen.
