"FOR THE EYES OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING"
Hidden manna for the Bible student
Current time of global unrest has given rise to uncertainty concerning the future. Religious animosity has increased due to terrorism's attacks on the innocent. Social indifference to sin has grown and many have lost their way in life because of moral depravity. When parents fail to live a life of morality in their homes, the children suffer a lack of moral boundaries. Therefore many parents seeking spiritual structure for their families are turning to God, seeking a life of hope for themselves and their children. The Holy Bible, more than ever before, is perceived as the source for spiritual guidance. Christianity is a life lived according to God's provision of faith, hope and love. Those who invited Christ into their lives, worship God because of what God has given them through Christ. Christianity is not a life lived seeking what we can do to gain God's favor through commitment and submission. Rather, it is a life lived loving God because of what He has freely given to those who believe in Christ, the Son of God. Christ Jesus is God's answer to the issues of life we all face in a world of unrest and uncertainty. The world does not offer a solution that fills the void in our mortal souls.
Proverbs 13:19 (NIV) - A longing (void) fulfilled is sweet to the soul, but fools detest turning from evil.
Gaining knowledge and wisdom from God's Word is a virtuous endeavor and merits our earnest efforts to study the Bible. The reward God provides those who believe and follow Christ's example of life is a personal relationship with Him and eternal life in heaven.
This series of writings will help provide clarity in understanding the marvelous prophetic presentation of God's truth of life. The narrative structure of the Bible has survived thousands of years of civilization changes, providing unchanging timeless truths to each civilization and generation. The Bible is truly a miracle in itself, apart from which all would die as mortals and ignorant of the truth of life.
Proverbs 12:28 (NIV) - In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.
God is light - 1 John 1:5 - This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Jesus is the light prophesied by Isaiah - Matthew 4:16 (NIV) - The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned." (17) From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near."
John 8:12 (NIV) - When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
This website will enlarge your perception of God's truth; expand your perception of who you are as a new creation; increase your faith; and His light will shine within you with a deeper understanding (revelation) of Him. For this purpose, this series of books is dedicated.
Christians have varying levels of biblical understanding and enlightenment to God's Word. But, few can perceive the big picture of the Word of God. Prophetic characteristics (foreshadows, people types, symbols and patterns) of biblical scriptures are referred to as hidden manna by many scholars of the Bible. Understanding hidden manna will lace all the books of the Bible in a cohesive presentation of God working with His chosen people during this dimension of time.
The Bible is the only book that can provide the real truth of life, which can guide man through God's transformation process. Transforming man from a creature who lives in darkness (blinded to God's truth) into a creation who is in the likeness of God (lives according to the glory and light of the gospel) is the miracle of the salvation process. The Bible is not a guide for self actualization, attempting to gain a higher order of spiritual awareness through self improvement. God's truth has the power to open man's eyes with a revelation of life after death and to experientially know the reality of that life today, not through works, but through faith. The Word of God is His seed for faith and factually connects man to God's gracious favor and He will see God's hand upon his life through signs and wonders, tangible evidence of the presence of God in his life. No other book can guide man in establishing a personal relationship with his Creator. How can man ever know God, as his Father, without having a personal relationship with Him? The Word of God is anointed and empowers man with knowledge and hope for his future. So, diligent study of His Word will approve us in His sight - 2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV) - Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
For a short lesson on God's light go to God's Light Resides in Us
To know God, as He confirms His promises through His Word with signs and wonders, will form a big picture of the heart of God. Faith and commitment to God's Word, reconciles man to God, cleans him up, dresses him in righteousness, guides him through this dimension of life, sets him apart from those who do not know God (those who have rejected His truth), and prepares a place for him in heaven. At the end of his life on this earth, Christ Jesus returns to the earth and takes him to eternally reside with Him. Imagine the wonder of such a change!! So, the Bible is the most important book ever written for mankind's eternal good.
The Way to God is made known to us through God's only begotten Son, Christ Jesus. The Old Testament prophetically revealed the coming of God's Son and the New Testament reveals Jesus as the begotten Son of God. Jesus came to provide a doorway to the kingdom of God. He was "God with us" when He was born. After His resurrection and ascension, He is "God in us" because He paid the debt for our sins and indwells us by the Holy Spirit. But, man has to open the door of his heart by faith. By faith man accesses the grace of God which saves him. The gospel of Christ has the power to save because it is anointed by God, meaning, that by faith in Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit empowers man with inner strength to become a child of God. Then, God responds to our faith in the gospel with signs and wonders, as we embark on our journey of transformation. Apart from faith in the gospel, there is no hope for man!
God's Word is His revealed truth. Enlightenment of His truth is available to each person who seeks and asks God for wisdom, even concerning the innermost heart of God. Diligent study of the Bible will always increase knowledge and discernment of His truth. To experientially know what God has spoken is to know God. So, the Bible will reveal your purpose for life during this dimension of time. The Word of God will open your heart to relationally know God.

This series of books will provide you with deeper illuminations of biblical truth concerning the agenda and heart of God throughout the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The books in this series are not mere rhetorical presentations of the Bible. They are concerned with orthodox metaphorical precepts presented in the form of foreshadows, symbols, people types of Christ and historical events which prophetically represent future events. This is the hidden manna of God concerning His work in forming the body of Christ and preparing the church for His return.
Ephesians 1:17-19 (KJV) - That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: (18) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, (19) And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to usward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power.... This scripture inspired me to name this series of books. It is my hope that you will be enlightened to know the heart of God throughout the Bible.
"FOR THE EYES OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING" is the title of this series which aides the perception of a big picture of the Bible from the beginning in Genesis through the end time in Revelation. God created all things and He created them to work in a certain way. God has an agenda and His agenda is methodological. God's agenda mirrors the heart of God throughout the Bible. All biblical topics and precepts, as understood by each Christian, should fit within the framework of God's agenda. Understanding His agenda will fortify the Bible as the true undeniable Word of God.
series will open the
Eyes of Your Understanding
to hidden manna revealed to those who wholeheartedly seek
to know Christ and will draw you closer to Him. Biblical precepts
formed by foreshadows, symbols and types and validated by
Hebrew and Greek root words will provide insight beyond the scope
of literal interpretation of scriptures. Foreshadows, symbols and
people types are word mechanics God placed in the Bible to
reveal hidden manna to the church concerning the redemptive work
of Christ Jesus, Israel's Messiah. Understanding hidden
manna will provide you with the deep truths of God's Word and aid
you as a witness of the hope you have in Christ Jesus - 1 Peter
3:15 - Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who
asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
Understanding hidden manna will provide you with the deep truths of God's Word and aid you as a witness of the hope you have in Christ Jesus - 1 Peter 3:15 - Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.
Books of This Series Are Free Reads
Twenty two years have been invested in the preparation of this series and website. Each book is worthy of your study time.
I recommend reading the Series Introduction and Foreshadow Introduction prior to reading the following books. This will help form your perception and understanding of hidden manna.
Volume I - "THE GARDEN OF EDEN - Adam's Creation and His Spiritual and Physical Environments" investigates God's purpose for creating the heavens and earth. Answers such questions as: Why did He form man to inhabit the earth? What was the environment of the earth prior to the flood? What happen in the Garden of Eden? What's wrong with natural man? What does it mean to be lost? Why does man need to be saved? The effects of sin upon God's creation are discussed. Man's dissension into mortality is revealed. Also included is an in-depth discussion on the Gap Theory concerning the beginning of the earth. What is the geophysical science associated with the pre-flood earth environment?
Volume II - "NEW BEGINNING AND A NEW WORLD ENVIRONMENT" answers these questions: Why did God flood the earth? What were the geophysical and spiritual environmental differences between the pre-flood and post-flood worlds? What will God do differently in post flood earth? Also included is a study on the Fallen Angels Theory.
Volume III - "JOSEPH, MANASSEH AND EPHRAIM - A Foreshadow of God's Agenda for Jew and Gentile" is a study of the lives of Joseph, Manasseh and Ephraim. What do their lives prophetically reveal about God's plan of salvation for the Jew and Gentile? If Joseph is an Old Testament type of Christ, then who will be revealed through the lives of Manasseh and Ephraim?
Volume IV - "CROSSING THE JORDAN RIVER- A Prophetic foreshadow of Salvation for Jew and Gentile" is an in-depth study of Joshua's account of leading the Israelites across the Jordan River. This historical account is also a metaphorical presentation revealing the appointed time for the salvation of Jews and Gentiles. How much time has God appointed for the salvation of Israel? What is the scriptural evidence for the set time of Israel's salvation? When does "the times of the Gentiles" come to a close? Will the Gentiles (those outside the nation of Israel who are saved) endure the end time tribulation?
Volume V - "THE BOOK OF REVELATION - God's Agenda for the End Time" is an in-depth study of the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation is one of the most studied books of the Bible. Today, more than any other topic, all Christians desire to know about the future coming of Christ and end time events.
Never before in the history of Christianity have so many Bible scholars discern the approaching end time. In years past, many have predicted the time and arrival of the end time and the rapture of those who believe their prophetic message. Well, their dates have passed and we are still here! Self proclaimed prophets have come and gone. But, today is different in this respect, many well known prophets unanimously state that the end time is near. They do not predict dates and times, but are discerning world events unfolding in a biblical prophetic manner. As instructed by Jesus Himself in the parable of the fig tree (Luke 21: 29-31), these prophets see Biblical prophecy fulfilled by world events. Even pastors who do not publicly venture into end time prophetic discourses, beyond preaching to their immediate congregations, also discern the nearness of the end time. For the first time in our history there is a general discernment in the corporate church that the season of the end time is near! Most pastors has a prominent desire to be diligent in the pulpit, to be watchful and get Christians ready for the harvest of the church and the arrival of Christ Jesus. No pastor wants to see a portion of his congregation left behind.
Discerning the times and tieing current events to Biblical scriptures is a daunting task. Even though many current events precisely fit prophetic scriptures, it is difficult to discern the precise timing for the season of the end time. So, the prophets who are watchful are still waiting for a few other events to occur to indicate the arrival of the end time. A few of these events are; discovery of the ark of the covenant, locating the ashes of the red heifer used in the last temple, the appearance of a peace envoy from a world alliance of nations to structure peace in the middle east, increased intensity of conflicts between warring nations, returning the Jews back to the temple mount, establishment of a one world currency, etc. So, the real questions for today is this - Am I ready for the return of Christ? What must I do to be watchful and prepared for His return? What is God doing in the end time? What is His agenda according to the Book of Revelation?
Note: Volume 4 will provide scriptural validation for the season of the end time and Volume 5 of this series and open your eyes to understand God's agenda for the end time. End time agenda structure is revealed in the book of Revelation without consulting any other book of the Bible. However, once Revelation's end time agenda is understood, other books of the Bible are used to validate and confirm agenda structure. So, Volume 4 establishes the end time season for salvation of the Jews through a foreshadow. Volume 5 will layout end time agenda by structuring a time chart, step by step. As the time chart is structured, validation is confirmed by using other well known scriptures in the Bible. The messages will then be based on the whole counsel of the Word of God.
Personally, I believe most all believers (sixty years and younger) will be on the earth for the harvest / rapture of the corporate church.
Scholars and preachers are invited to compare their precepts of God's end time agenda to what is revealed in Volumes 4 and 5. At the least, you will be challenged to understand end time eschatology as a whole presentation of God's end time agenda. Additionally, Volume 6 will reveal the pre-tribulation judgment seat criteria for the House of God and provide encouragement to preach sermons which will help prepare all congregations to be ready for this pre-trib event.
This study is centered on God's end time agenda for Christians and Jews? The book of Revelation is simple to understand and clarifies many different opinions and issues concerning eschatological events, i.e., What is God's judgment criteria for judging the church? When does God judge the Jews? When does God initiate wrath against Jews and Gentiles who have refused the gospel message of salvation? What is the Mark of the Beast and what is the formula for establishing the mark? Is the chronological format of the book of Revelation an undeniable basis for structuring God's end time agenda? Why is there so much confusion or differences of opinion between Bible scholars concerning the harvest / rapture of the church? Why do some scholars believe in the pre-tribulation harvest / rapture? Others believe in the mid-tribulation rapture and still others believe in the post-tribulation harvest / rapture? Who has the correct understanding and insight into the harvest of the church? This book will clarify the end time agenda of God and eliminate confusion concerning the rapture of the church.
Volume VI - "THE SEVEN LETTERS TO THE SEVEN CHURCHES" is a study of God's pre-trib agenda for the church. Why are the letters a part of the book of Revelation? Each letter contains the phrase "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." Each letter is directed to all the other churches, not just a specific church. Therefore, the letters are an overall message from Christ to the corporate church (Protestant, Greek and Catholic). There are seven letters in the overall message because they are topical presentations of seven specific judgments Christ employs in His judgment of the corporate church, prior to the start of the seven year tribulation.
What is the proper interpretation of the topics contained in the text of the letters? Why should Christians be concerned with a deeper understanding of the letters and their purpose? How do the letters affect Christian lives today? When Christ returns to judge the corporate church will He find spiritual slumber or pro-active faith? What is the reward received by the pre-tribulation harvest of saints? Will He say to you, "I never knew you" - Matthew 7:21-23 (NIV)?
This book will most likely be the first presentation you've ever heard of the seven letters as the complete pre-tribulation segment of the end time, as well as, guidance for spiritual development today.
Volume VII - "CHRIST IN THE TABERNACLE" is a study of the prophetic and symbolic meanings of God's design or pattern for the tabernacle. Why did He command Moses to construct the tabernacle exactly to the pattern? What is the hidden manna in the symbols and patterns? Understanding the patterns and symbols of the tabernacle will provide the Bible student with a wonderful insight to the mind and heart of God when He delivered the Israelites from Egyptian bondage and began a new phase of spiritually preparing the Israelites for the arrival of His Son, Jesus. The tabernacle's pattern is a complete prophetic picture of the covenant promise through Abraham - redemption and transformation through Christ Jesus.
