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.
We grow the more we read, yes there are times things don’t make sense but one thing is for sure, the Holy Spirit will reveal it to us when we need it and than we will be like, yeah I remember reading that now I know what it meant…AMEN
God is truly good and merciful. Thanks for the definitions.
