Much of what God has written in plain language contains hidden information. A goal of this website is to search out the fuller meaning of the Scripture, to the enigmas, to dig up the hidden treasures, to understand the mysteries, to put together the puzzles, to glean insight from the text without adding to the Bible. When one discovers what God has hidden in Scripture one grows in faith and comes to better understand His maker. Chronology is a framework God uses therefore understanding His framework is important. God uses the sun, moon and stars for signs, therefore understanding how He uses them as signs can help us to understand Him. The Bible all 73 books has one author the Holy Spirit, often an obscure passage can bring great insight into one’s understanding of a far removed passage. Understanding the mindset, the culture, the history, of the people in the Scripture can greatly enhance one understanding of God.
