In the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?
Every Roman Catholic, making the sign of the cross, states, "In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," when they begin a prayer. Christians are baptized using this same phrase. We must ask ourselves, "Did Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, the Prophets, Mark, Luke, John, Peter, Paul etc. etc. ever pray with, baptize in or ever use this phrase, as recorded in the Word of Yahweh? Did Jesus ever pray in this manner? The answer is, No! Then what premise is this aspect of the Christian Faith based on? One verse, which is Matthew 28:19, "Go ye, therefore, and disciple all the nations, Immersing them into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." The interesting truth is that no one, in the Word of Yahweh, was ever immersed in this manner, or prayed in this manner, which makes the above verse problematic.

Hesed - Yahweh's Covenantal Relationship Towards His Servants
"So then, thou must know that, Yahweh thy Elohim, he, is Elohim,—the faithful El, keeping his covenant and his hesed with them that love him, and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations" (Deu. 7:9). Hesed is a foundational Hebrew word that has no Greek or English equivalent. People have translated it mercy, kindness, lovingkindness, goodness, love and on and on we go but these words do not define hesed. The American rabbi, Nelson Glueck, professor at Hebrew Union College, wrote his doctoral dissertation, in July 1927, on hesed. This article is based upon his book, 'Hesed in the Bible,' which I encourage everyone to read. (I do not recommend the preface, 'Recent Studies in Hesed,' by Gerald A. Larue, which is full of the doctrines of men.) Read Complete Article(PDF Version) ** Article added 10/5/16 **
Why hasn't God healed my Child?
Yahweh has been slandered, by his children, by such statements as stated above. Yahweh's Word is very clear on why some people do not need healing; while others need healing; why some receive healing and why others do not. It is the doctrines of men and their unbelief that confuse this subject, blackening the pristine brightness of Adonay Yahweh, our Creator. This article will take a step-by-step approach to answering the above question, so others can deliver people from a lie to the truth, even though they or a loved one may suffer and die a premature death. This article will only address practicing Christians, that-is-to-say, those who keep Yahweh's commandments. Read Complete Article(PDF Version) ** Article added 9/10/16 **.
Yahweh's Mind on Feeding Vagrants,
a.k.a. "The Homeless"
The difference between a poor person and a vagrant is the vagrant will turn down work. T. S. Eliot once stated, "Most of the evil in this world is done by people with good intentions." His statement is extreme but it harbors the truth that many times we do more harm to an individual by becoming his enabler rather than offering him deliverance. Yahweh's Word is life to all those who hear and do it! If Yahweh forbids us from feeding vagrants, then we are in rebellion if we disobey his command. Rather than receiving a reward for our, "Acts of (so-called) Charity," our deeds, at the judgment, seat will be consumed by fire, thereby we will suffer loss. We can feel good giving a vagrant a handout, performing our good deed for the day, but Yahweh rebukes such actions if the person refuses to work. This article does not address people who are poor but rather it addresses the people who the World now call, "The Homeless". Read Complete Article(PDF Version) ** Article added 8/15/16 **.
O Thoughtless Ones! Who hath BEWITCHED You
The word, 'Bewitched,' used in Galatians 3:1 is the Greek word, 'baskaino' "which indicates amongst other things a harmful magic exercised independently of the subjective will and with no particular technique. The dangerous feature is that people have willingly yielded to these magicians and their influence without realizing to what powers of falsehood they were surrendering. The characteristic point of the baskaino is that it exerts its influence without extraordinary means." Does this description sound familiar? The bewitching of the children of Adam and Eve began unendingly to this very day. Read Complete Article ** Article added 3/26/16 **.
"Sola Scriptura" or is it, "It is Written!" "It is Written!" is the believer's foundation. What is written are words coming from the very mouth (peh) of the Creator, Adonai Yahweh. Associated with but not equal to, "It is Written," is the phrase, 'Sola Scriptura,' which is Latin for, 'Scripture Only or Scripture Alone.' Martin Luther stated, "those things which have been delivered to us by God in the Sacred Scriptures must be sharply distinguished from those that have been invented by men in the Church, it matters not how eminent they be for saintliness and scholarship." Today's Protestant Church would verbally agree with his statement but their stated beliefs contradict the premise of Sola Scriptura, let alone, "It is Written." Historically, Yahweh wrote his Word and then gave his words, to the prophets, beginning with Moses, to be written for the instruction of his people. His words were always to be the absolute standard for mankind to live by but the words of men and the words of the adversary have been and are being commingled with or stand in opposition to Yahweh's words.

Can You Pray to Jesus
The majority of Christians, including pastors, are ignorant concerning the meaning of the Hebrew and Greek words that have been translated, 'Prayer.' The words supplication and intercession are rarely, if at all, used in their vocabulary. To them, asking is the same as a prayer but as we all know, asking for help from a friend is not praying to them. Most people say, 'prayer,' when they mean, 'supplication;' supplication meaning, "a seeking, asking, entreating, entreaty to God or to man." The question should be restated to say, 'Can you pray to anyone besides YAHWEH?'. Read Complete Article ** Article added 8/1/15 **
The Sacred Name (Nomina Sacra)
The First Commandment given from the mouth of Yahweh, from Mount Sinai was, "I, am YAHWEH thy Elohim,—who have brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of servants:— Thou shalt not have other gods, besides me. Thou shalt not make to thee an image, or any form..." (Ex. 20:2-4). YAHWEH, was the one and only sacred name for the Hebrews. The Gentile (polytheists) Christian Church added many sacred names to the scriptures, according to their Greek manuscripts. The early Greek-Christian manuscripts leave a well documented trail explaining the formation of this idolatry, in contrast to the early Jewish-Christian manuscripts, which maintain only one sacred name, which is YAHWEH.

The Woman Caught in Adultery
The beloved story of an Adulteress (John 7:53 to 8:11) being forgiven resounds in the hearts of the public. The phrase, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her," becomes a new penetrating doctrine; an unconditional doctrine of love. Overtime we discovered that this section of scripture does not appear in the second and third century manuscripts (which is footnoted in Bibles) meaning it was added to the text; it is not from the mouth of Yahweh. (See Appendix A) We might then say, we agree with ones who have said, "The story itself has justly seemed to vouch for its own internal truth, and the words in which it is clothed to harmonize with other Gospel narratives." Could this well beloved account actually be a darnel sowed among the wheat? Read Complete Article ** Article added 12/14/14 **
St. Athanasius & St. Basil The Great Deceivers
Basil of Caesarea is accurately called, St. Basil the 'Great,' which is a misnomer. Basil of Caesarea (330-375 AD) and Athanasius of Alexandra ( St. Athanasius the 'Great,' (298-373 AD)) were, by judging their fruit, "...false apostles, deceitful workers, transfiguring themselves into apostles of Christ" (2 Cor. 11:13). Athanasius is known for his work in forming the second god, 'God the Son,' while Basil is known for his work in forming the third god, 'God the Holy Spirit.' Second Corinthians chapter eleven was written with the purpose of warning us of such individuals as these; ministers of the adversary, working from within the Church rather than from without.

Elijah's Retirement on Earth
(Not in Heaven) We all have been taught that Elijah was taken up into the heavenlies, never to return to earth; never to die, as do all other men (except those who will be alive at Christ's Parousia). The scriptures do not teach this, even though he was taken up into the heavens. Elijah was probably transported away from the Israelites into retirement. Approximately seven to thirteen years after his departure, from Elisha, he comes out of retirement, after Jehoshaphat's death, to write a letter to Jehoshaphat's son, Jehoram.

Life or Death not Heaven or Hell If I type the words life and death into a Bible software search engine, many verses come up but if I type in heaven and hell, nothing comes up (except in the KJV & NKJV). This fact should speak volumes to our understanding. Yahweh, through his Word, speaks of life or death, be saved or perish or be saved or be destroyed. From my experience, most of the Bible teachers I hear, speak of heaven or hell rather than life or death. Read Complete Article ** Article added 7/12/14 **
'The Woman at the Well'
Setting the Record Straight Diabolos (devil) means prone to slander, slanderous, accusing falsely. This term fits those individuals who make false accusations concerning other individuals, who are in the Word of Yahweh, when the texts make no such statements. 'The Woman at the Well,' (John 4) which more accurately should be called, 'The Woman at the Fountain,' is one of those individuals who has been slandered for centuries by many famous religious leaders. This unholy behavior must stop. This beautiful record has been marred and distorted by men who disregard what is written by interjecting their own opinion or by men who are parroting what others have said, never searching the scriptures to see if this is true. Let us re-examine what is written rather that what less than pure minds have taught. Read Complete Article ** Article added 6/29/14 **
Creeds A creed is a confession, a symbol, or a statement of faith of the shared beliefs of a religious community. Christians have the ancient creeds, such as the Roman Creed, the Apostle's Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Constantinople Creed. Today, every Christian denomination chooses their own creed but which one, if any, are right? This led me to ask the question, "Is there one book, in the Word of Yahweh (Bible), that tells Yahweh's whole Story; one book where we could get the entire Christian Creed? The book of Genesis tells us of Yahweh, the creation, mankind, the serpent, the seed of the women but it does not inform us of the end. The book of Revelation tells us the end but not the beginning. Likewise, we can go through each book, examining it's contents to see if it unveils the whole story of Yahweh. Read Complete Article ** Article added 2/1/14 **
Erasing the 'Begotten' Son & the Father I am from a KJV generation that memorized John 3:16 as, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son...

The New Living Translation is Dangerous!
The NLT Bible, of 1996, is ungodly and dangerous to the youths and immature Christians who have purchased it. I would not address this issue except that this, so called translation, is the number four selling Bible from 2011 to 2013. The NIV Bible, which is the number one seller from 2011 to 2013, has been addressed in our article, 'The NIV Bible is a Paraphrase.' The NIV, so called translation, is a saint when compared to the NLT. The prophet Ezekiel was made a watchman by Yahweh in order that he could warn Yahweh's people (Ez. 3:17). As a watchman on the wall, I have seen the invaders, who have penetrated the camp, so I must blow the horn to all who will hear the warning. The NLT, as I will demonstrate, is a corrupting influence on the babes in Christ.

Precious Jewels in the Hebrew Language
The Hebrew language does not have tenses, such as past, present and future, as does the English language, but rather Hebrew verbs are in a state, called Perfect or Imperfect. English Bible translations, Young's being the exception, changes these verbs from being perfect or imperfect to our usage of past, present and future. For example, when David was speaking to Goliath, the Hebrew text reads (Young's Bible), "This day doth Jehovah shut thee up into my hand — and I have smitten thee, and turned aside thy head from off thee, and given the carcase of the camp of the Philistines this day to the fowl of the heavens..." but English Bible translations, such as the NIV, change these verbs to, "This day the LORD will hand you over to me, and I will strike you down and [will] cut off your head. Today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air..." (1 Sam. 17:46). The usage of the Hebrew perfect or imperfect, which are underlined, can only be seen in Young's Bible. Read Complete Article ** Article added 8/15/13 **

Faith Unleashes Power
Power is defined as the ability to do or effect something or anything, or to act upon a person or thing. This article is for people who have already received the indwelling power, the power that is not of this world, which is the ruah (spirit) of Yahweh; ruah and power go hand-in-hand. The phrase, spirit (ruah) and power is a figure of speech called, Two for One (Hendiadys); two words used, but one thing meant. The two words are of the same parts of speech; two nouns or two verbs joined together by the conjunction, 'and.' You can accurately rephrase, 'spirit and power,' to, 'ruah, that is to say, power,' is upon me. Read Complete Article ** Article added 5/1/13 **

Such a Poet does exist! Yahweh, the Creator of the greatest star and the smallest cell, is also the Creator of Hebrew words, their meanings, their various arrangements and figures of speech. He is a lover of words, the master of meaning, expressing his very thoughts and ideas to us, the hearers. Read Complete Article ** Article added 3/10/13 **
Christ is not 'The Creator'! - (Equipping the Saints to Defend Truths) "Thus, saith El himself—YAHWEH,—Creator of the heavens, that stretched them forth, Out-spreader of earth, and the products thereof,—Giver of breath to the people thereon, And of ruah (spirit) to them who walk therein" (Is. 42:5). YAHWEH is 'The Creator' of all things! Christ Yahoshua is Yahweh's only-begotten Son, whom Yahweh, his Father made LORD over all of his Creation, which Yahweh Created. The evidence, from the scriptures, concerning this truth is overwhelming, as you will see. We must ask ourselves, 'How could this simple truth, beginning in Genesis chapter one and ending in Revelation not be the foundation of the Christian Church'? The foundation of many believers is upon the misguided teaching that Christ, not Yahweh is 'The Creator'?Read Complete Article ** Article added 2/28/13 **
The Baal of Today, Government
Many followers of Yahweh, in bygone ages, chose to bow down to Yahweh and another god, whose name was Baal (bah’- al). They might have concluded that if one God is good then two must be better. For many deceived and covetous good Christians, this is also true today. Many deceived and covetous good Christians bow down to Yahweh for their next life but for their present life they bow down to 'Government' (Baal) from whom they seek life's necessities, such as health, food, protection and pleasures. They would never personally call Government their, 'God,' (Baal) but when a need arises, who do they look to, to supply their need; who do they empower with their vote? Yahweh? Government? or Both? The prophet Elijah addressed this same problem when he spoke to the children of Israel by saying, "How long are ye limping on the two divided opinions? If, Yahweh, be El [GOD], follow, him, but, if, Baal, follow, him" (1 Kg. 18:21). The first commandment is, "Thou shalt not have other gods, besides me" (Ex. 20:3).

Unveiling the 'Self-Described' Atheist and Agnostic There are neither atheists nor agnostics in this world but only those who refuse to bow their knees to the Creator and love their neighbors as themselves. All of mankind, excluding those who are children or mentally retarded, will be accountable for the way they lived their lives. Not one sound minded person will be able to say, 'I did not have enough evidence to believe that a Creator existed and that he demanded me to live righteously.' Yahweh rules out this argument in Romans 1:20, "For, the unseen things of him, from a world’s creation, by the things made [us], being perceived, are clearly seen, even his eternal power and divinity,—to the end they should be without excuse." Those who have heard of and had access to the Bible will be thrown into the Lake of Fire, which is the Second Death if they have refused to make Yahoshua their Lord. Those who did not have access to the Bible will be judged according to their works. Self-described atheists and agnostics only play a child's game by saying they do not believe, when they most assuredly do. Read Complete Article

A Different Gospel - The Gospel of "God's Unconditional Love" Typing in the words, 'Unconditional Love,' on the internet produces a very wide response, much of which comes from the New Age movement while a Christian perspective is only secondary.

We have been severely warned to stay away from the 'Different Gospels' that absolutely will be proclaimed. One of these new Gospels, which I believe is one of the most dangerous, is the new doctrine, for this age, called, 'God's Unconditional Love or Loving Unconditionally.' Why is it so dangerous?

Ephesians chapter four unfolds the 'Christian Life,' the manifold wisdom of Yahweh. Verses four through thirteen of chapter four, which will be our main lesson, is essentially a parenthetical paragraph; verse seventeen resuming the thought of verse three, while verses four to sixteen explain in more detail verse three, which states, "Giving diligence to keep––the 'Oneness' of the spirit in the uniting–bond of peace."

Good people have a tendency to want to tweak what Yahweh has spoken, while the adversary dreams of eradicating it. These two unlikely beings form an unholy partnership, without the former realizing that such has been done.

"Only, against Yahweh, do not 'Rebel' (Nu. 14:9)"
"Our beloved Creator demands total allegiance from his creations. Sin, the enemy of Yahweh, is constantly knocking at our door, inviting itself into our lives, attempting to acquire some or all of our allegiance for itself. Charles H. Spurgeon wrote, "Ah! now we dance with our sins, it is a merry life with us, we take their hands, and, sporting in the noontide sun, we dance, we dance, and live in joy. But then those sins shall bite us. The young lions we have stroked and played with shall bite; the young adder, the serpent, whose azure hues have well delighted us, shall bite, shall sting..." The meaning of sin is to miss or wander from the path of uprightness and honor, to do or go wrong. Sin, as an act of rebellion, rather than missing the mark, can have a domino effect, resulting in generations experiencing the repercussions; a derailing effect, whereby derailed generations, who do not even know or understand what originally derailed the main engine, suffer the consequences of another's sin of rebellion."

All things necessary for life and godliness lie upon its surface but, beneath that surface are 'great spoils' which are found only by those who seek after them as for 'hidden treasures.' Yahweh has been pleased to give us the revelation of His mind and will in Hebrew words and in a lesser extent, Greek words. It is therefore absolutely necessary that we should understand not merely the meanings of the words themselves, but also the laws which govern their usage and combinations." Read Complete Article

In many of our Bibles, the man-made heading above Genesis chapter twenty-seven states, "Jacob's deception." Commentaries revile Rebekah and Jacob for their deception of Isaac. The Church calls them 'deceivers,' but the mouth of Yahweh does not utter such a word. On the contrary, Yahweh says that he ahabs (loves) Jacob. Jacob is never reproved by Yahweh for deceiving Isaac neither does Jacob repent of his actions. Could it be that Rebekah and Jacob were doing Yahweh's will by deceiving Isaac? Could it be that the slanderer (devil (diabolos)), the accuser of the brethren has deceived the Church into slandering (accusing falsely) Yahweh's own, Jacob and Rebekah? I would say yes! It is time for the Church to repent of this slander; to learn to be silent when Yahweh is silent. " Read Complete Article

The traditions of men, not Yahweh, have given us the names and writers of these books. We must remember, when Yahweh is silent, we must also be silent. These books are the works of Yahweh and not the recollections of men. Enigmas and puzzles are found throughout these books which require our thoughtful study, meditation and examination. We must prayerfully and humbly petition the Author that he may open the eyes of our understanding to his amazing Word, which he has magnified above his Name. " Read Complete Article

"Living a life, age-abidingly, with the Creator, in the New Jerusalem is the hope of every worshipper of Yahweh. Yahweh does not delight in the death of the lawless but would rather that all men choose life. The salvation from an age-abiding death is what we base our lives on. Confusion on how to receive a life that is age-abiding is universal because many pastors and teachers do not rightly dividing the Word of Truth, resulting in errors that are taught, leaving believers drifting from certainty to uncertainty on this most foundational truth. Is salvation from death received by works, election or grace? The Word of Yahweh, which gives us all we need for life and godliness, answers this question. In our present age, we can know of a certainty that we have received life age-abiding and we can also know with certainty that it will never be taken away. This statement is not true in the age to come, which is why rightly dividing the Word of Truth, according to the ages, is so absolutely imperative to sound doctrine. Our hope is life age-abiding. We need to be experts in this area of scripture in order that we may give an answer to every man who asks us the question, “How can I be saved?”" Read Complete Article

If this was you, you had or still have a hybrid faith; a faith that commingles Yahweh with the goddess Eostre, a goddess of fertility, which is why we have Easter bunnies and eggs. Hybrid faiths have come about “…while men were sleeping, their enemy came, and sowed over darnels, in among the wheat,––and away they went” (Mt. 13:25). Actually, throughout history, hybrid faiths are the norm rather than the exception. Our parents and pastors, who were our teachers, were our dupers because they were duped because their parents or teachers were deceived and this pattern continues going back as far as Eve and Adam. If you believe that you are not deceived in the things concerning Yahweh, then you are most probably deceived!" Read Complete Article
" 'God is Not in Control!' "
"Throughout time, people have always tried to understand why evil things happen to good people. The teaching that comes from seminaries claiming that, "God is in Control," has been a pitiful, human attempt to answer this question by blaming all evil upon a loving Heavenly Father, which is supposed to ‘some-how,’ make you feel better after a tragedy has occurred. "God is not in Control," as we shall see, thereby placing evil and wickedness on the responsible parties. When I say, "God is not in Control," it is not to say that Yahweh is not the Creator who is Good, Loving and Powerful but rather Yahweh’s creation, Man, who was created in the image of Elohim, has been given great responsibilities, authorities and powers. With mankind came sin and all of its consequences, which has been carried down through the generations. I believe the teaching that, ‘God is in Control,’ does not bring peace to a troubled soul as the Church hopes but rather anger and resentment against Yahweh. If a child dies a premature death and the Church says, ‘God is in Control,’ then one could say, "with a friend like God who needs an enemy." If a man had committed such evils that the Christian Church has attributed to their loving Creator, Yahweh, he would have righteously been put to death many times over according to the Law of Yahweh. If, ‘God is in Control,’ then he is an accessory to every crime that has ever been committed. The man-made doctrine that, ‘God is in Control,’ is blaspheme!" Read Complete Article

The science fiction term, 'close encounter,' means contact with alien life in some form, either by seeing an alien aircraft, which is called a 'first encounter,' up to observing an alien which is called a 'close encounter of the third kind.' 'Close encounter of the fifth kind' is communication with benevolent aliens, which will be our topic. This science fiction terminology will be useful for our study of the unseen world. Our contacts, for this study, will be with terestrial and celestial beings. The majority of us have already entertained messengers (angels) unaware!" Read Complete Article
"It is Written."
"The very foundation of an orderly society is the written word. The United States Constitution is the bedrock upon which the U.S.A. lives. In like manner, the written Word of Yahweh is the solid rock upon which all order, justice and truth is derived. Anarchy and confusion result when the written Words of Yahweh are no longer our foundation. Our beliefs should always begin with the three words, 'It is Written.' If we can not do so, our beliefs are not part of the foundation of the Word of Yahweh but rather are like icebergs ever adrift on the seas of uncertainties. With no rock beneath our feet, we drift with the never-ending doctrines of men. Their visions and revelations steer our lives away from our Rock of Salvation. As messengers of light, these individuals actually become the blind leading the blind as we both fall into the ditch. Their apparently innocent, sincere, corrupting, revelations lead us away from the truth of Yahweh into the lies of the adversary. We then become their disciples, such as were Jews of the Pharisees and Sadducees. We become disciples of men; disciples of Jeroboam, Athanasius, Basil, the Pope, Luther, Joseph Smith or Joyce Meyers, rather than the disciples of Yahweh. We are adrift because our anchor is not the Word of Yahweh, as 'It is Written.'"

"The Corinthian Church All Over Again"
"The Corinthian Church was having its problems when the Apostle Paul wrote them his first letter. If Yahweh was going to write a letter to today's Christian Church, would the same problems that were addressed to the Corinthian believers apply to us? I am sorry to say, yes! We daily read the book of Corinthians but is this divine revelation falling on deaf ears or blind eyes? Do we not see that, in many cases, shocking as it may seem, we are daily practicing, unawarely, the very same sins that the Corinthians practiced. Many of the pastors of the Church, it appears, are blind to this truth." Read Complete Article
"In the Beginning"
"Mankind (adam) are the only beings, in our seen world, that have the ability to ponder their own existence, the existence of their physical universe, the existence of the unseen, metaphysical (spiritual) universe and the reality of their own death. Not only do we ask the questions of how and why but we also seek Him who is the Creator, our Father, the giver of chay (khah'- ee = life) that is age-abiding; the giver of Paradise, of love, of joy, of peace, of everlasting bliss; the giver of a communion with one and all, which is sacred and pure. Our Creator answered our questions in the first three chapters of Genesis and the last three chapters of Revelation. These six chapters are the foundation upon which all are built, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the never ending end." Read Complete Article
Ephesians - A Mine of Rubies, Emeralds & Diamonds
"The book of Ephesians is 'a' if not 'the' pinnacle of the Christian faith. To discover and understand these jewels of truth, we must mine below the surface, a labyrinth of tunnels that lay hundreds of feet below the opening, passages ever leading us on to open the eyes of our heart, enabling us to behold our glorious Creator, Yahweh Elohim of Host and His triumphal Son, Christ Yahshua. Ephesians is difficult to comprehend because of its sentence syntax. After the general introduction, the book begins with a 278 word sentence, Ephesians 1:3-14 and this is just the introduction to this glorious adventure. As spelunkers explore different levels of caverns, we also choose the depth we are willing to explore, expecting gems around every bend, hoping for a grand cavern filled with wonders beyond our greatest expectations. This journey is into the super sentences of Ephesians, of which there are many. Understanding these devises of communication will allow us to behold and fulfill our vital purpose upon the earth, bringing glory unto our Father." Read Complete Article
"The microscope and telescope revealed, to mankind, a physical universe before unknown and unseen. Did these unknown worlds exist before we could see them? Why of course they did! Existence of anything is not conditioned upon what mankind sees and then believes nor on what mankind disbelieves because he cannot see it. There is another unseen universe, a nonphysical (spiritual) universe where holy beings dwell. There is also an unseen world where wicked beings abide. Although we cannot see this universe, it never-the-less exists. This universe, much like our seen universe, is comprised of rulers, kingdoms, life forms, habitats, warfare, prisons and so on and so on. Since it is unseen and not physical, we can only know of it, perceive it, experience it or see it with Yahweh's guidance; He, the Creator of this unseen world in which He lives, reveals to us its existence and attributes."
