A Scriptural introduction to angels
In the last couple of articles, we have started investigating the spiritual dimension of the Scriptures. When we talk about the spiritual dimension we also need to talk about the spiritual beings. In Scripture we find a number of references to heavenly beings. What exactly does Scripture teach us about angels, and which parts of what we think we know is made up by man through time? Let us look at angels from Scripture to find the truth.
The spiritual impact of Babel
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.
What did Nicodemus really hear?
In the Gospel of John we have a recording of a conversation that took place between Y’Shua and a Jewish teacher named Nicodemus. This is a very profound discussion that can only be appreciated by understanding the context of the questions and answers. In order to understand any message clearly we also need to understand the sender and the receiver of the message. To appreciate the answers that Y’Shua gives Nicodemus, we must think like Nicodemus would have thought. With this study we will show you the longevity of this message by analyzing the perceptions of the sender and receiver of the message. You will come to see that the answer given to Nicodemus reveals the Messiah to us and also tells us how to ensure that we will see the Kingdom of YHVH.
Scriptural introduction to prayer

However, when we get into a bit more detail, we still find a lot of varying positions and teachings on specific dimensions of prayer. With this study we focus on what the Scriptures teach us about prayer. We look at some of the reasons for praying and what the outcome of prayer is. Can we see what YHVH wants from us in prayer?
