The Hebrew word used in this verse for everlasting olam (עולם), also means “world” or “universe”. The word olam is closely related to the word ne’elam (נעלם), meaning ‘hidden.’ The phrase “El Olam” (אל עולם), ‘Everlasting God,’ alludes to the fact that Hashem (God) is also king over that which is hidden from us. Hashem has specifically designed a world that is ruled by the laws of nature and hides His presence. It is up to man to see past His mask and reveal the Godliness that is hidden throughout the universe.
STEVE & LAURIE MARTIN - LOVE FOR HIS PEOPLE FOUNDERS
My good wife Laurie and I (married 45 years), founded Love For His People Ministry in 2010. This work gives love and support to our friends in Israel and other nations with friendship and humanitarian aid. Through social media, Steve's messages, and our Ahava Adventures trips to Israel, it is a growing, effective organization.
Steve has also authored and published 36 books.
We live in the Charlotte, NC area and have four adult children, spouses, and eight grandkids.
Ahava and shalom with blessings on ye head!
