Sometimes we read the bible and it all seems like gibberish, nothing makes sense and nothing connects.
But with a closer look, everything falls in place.
When it comes to getting a message across, the Lord has done a great job making himself amply clear.
Nothing is vague, hidden or obscure, if, through the eye of the Holy Spirit, we could just stay patient and
dig a little deeper - That's when all these gems, treasures begin to unfold.

I believe that God wanted us to know that the atonement is a very big deal, so he did everything in His power to make that amply clear.
