Jacob named the place “Peni’el”, not pineal. This was a transliteration not a translation of the name. Peni’el is a word play on the expression “I saw God face to face.”
Saying that this verse has something to do with the pineal gland is ridiculous because the Hebrew word sounds like an English word. Peni’el means “I saw God face to face.” This is not related to the pineal gland.
Additionally, the word “pineal” is derived from Latin “pinea,” which means pine cone, referring to the shape of the gland.
There is no genuine correlation, so how can anyone led by the Holy Spirit make this connection? This wasn’t Yah’s intention.

Random tweet, it’s very strange but I associate praying mantis with Abba’s shalom and presence. This is not to say that if I don’t see one I’m not blessed or He is not with me. This is personal thing between Him and I. 😆
It was one Sabbath I was at the dinner table with my parents talking about Abba and I was really overwhelmed with His love (in a good way), and all of sudden I turned my head and saw this creature on top of the chair next to me.

In the tradition of Jews, there are ways to argue but still respect each other, even in heated debate. The goal is to arrive at truth, not get our points across, one up someone, or have the final say. If only Christian twitter can appropriate this in our discussions.
Ancient Hebrew sages speak of two kinds of arguments: arguments “for the sake of heaven” and arguments “not for the sake of Heaven”.

These were inspired by two schools of the ancient Hebrew scholars Hillel and Shammai.
Arguments for the sake of Heaven are positive, edifying, and life-affirming. Arguments not for the sake of Heaven are divisive, fruitless, and lack dialogue, and result in people not being treated with respect and dignity.

Regarding the other books that are not in the regular Bible, I read them but do not gather doctrine from them, rather my use is for historical reasons. Everything I know is based on canon of the Protestant Bible.
Personally, I have not heard from Abba to acknowledge the other books as divinely inspired. But I do not believe there was a “400 years of silence,” correct me if I’m wrong, there is no prophecy of that in the Tanakh.
If there were any books that were divinely inspired but not included in the Bibles we have today, I wouldn’t know unless Abba revealed that to me. When it comes to doctrine, for me it is found in the 66 books.

We all have different ways of delivering the truth of God’s word. Just because someone may confront problems within the body does not mean they are condemning or lacking grace, or that they don’t minister to or serve others.
People may not like what I say online, they may I think I don’t do anyone good on this app with how I address things like modesty, paganism, and being decent online. But log on my account and see my DMs. Spend a day with me and see what I do.
The problem is, we are used to those who are all talk but no walk, that when we see someone with a genuine hatred for sin, and lacking hypocrisy, we still accuse them of being condemning. It is just deflection. We need to grow from that.
