When we break down the verses into the original Hebrew/Greek, we can get a clear definition of what Abba Yah is telling His Elect to write for the world. So much has been lost in translation and sugar coated to blind us. Abba Yah warns of Spiritual blindness, and my job on Earth is to help those who want to see, See.

May Abba Yah Bless and Keep you all. Your full Armor needs to be on at all times for this is Spiritual Warfare until YAHUAH returns

(Ephesians 6:10-18)
