The Los Angeles Times had an interesting story a few days ago titled “When people work together, they’re literally on the same wavelength, brain waves show.” To see the article, click here.
Our Elohim warns us, as His set-apart people, to not intermix with those who reject Him. Throughout the Tanakh, He tells the Hebrews to not join together with pagans who will not turn to Him and His ways. Yeshua and the Apostles taught the same thing.
