This article will focus on a very specific incident in the Scriptures – The tower of Babel. Most people recall this piece of text only for the effect that it had, the creation of multiple languages and the separation of the nations. There was actually a lot more to this, if we look at this incident from a spiritual point of view. In this article we will study the other side of this piece of Scripture and reveal a lot more than normally meets the eye.
This is the second of a series of articles about the spiritual realm and its influence on us. This may seem a strange topic especially for us Torah-observant believers in Y’shua. It is a topic that is often ignored or not much talked about, especially in this movement.
When YHVH revealed the truth to us that His law has not been done away with and that all His commandments were still valid, basically that we have been lied to all our lives, we put all things identified with Christianity aside. For many years, we focused on learning how to keep YHVH’s commandments, while unlearning all the ingrained untruths. However, we believe that YHVH is guiding us to learn more about the spiritual realm especially how we can be influenced by it and how to deal with it when we are. This will become even more important as things progress toward the second coming of Messiah Y’shua.
The world is immersed in darkness and we as believers must know how to navigate through it in order to live effective lives. This is a daily battle and we are to be properly equipped. We will otherwise be defeated or distracted so much that we will not be able to do what we are here to do.
Although we all talk about the physical and the spiritual worlds, very few have done a study on this topic. The result is that we all walk around with different views of this spiritual dimension. Most of us do acknowledge the existence of a spiritual world. This is where the common agreement stops. If we believe that some of our problems originate in the spiritual realm, we need to get a good understanding of what this truly means.
