    Our Heavenly Abba Dad and God Almighty Yahwehs Holy Word is simply to understand if you let the Word itself speak to you. We must all come back to the integrity of the Holy Word in and of itself in which men a.k.a religion have done to it. Apocalypse/Apokalypsis- Things that are hidden secret/reveal/disclosure. Restoration is come. Glory to God through Christ our Blessed Lord Amen and Amen.

    If we love one another as children of God then we know we have passed from death unto life. But if we say we know God and walk in darkness, we lie as children of darkness. There is a difference between the holy and the profane. God is not mocked.
