The Knowledge of God (Part One)

Ephesians 1:17-18. “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: 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”
The great need of believers in these last days, is to grow in the knowledge of God. Note in the text that the God we are to know is clearly identified. He is not the (God) of our minds and thoughts – the (God) we conceive when we picture what God is like – the (God) made by the mind and hands of men – the (God) of religion.
The God we are to know is the God of Jesus Christ: that is, the God whom Jesus Christ worshipped when He was on the earth as a man; the God whom Jesus Christ came to reveal to men. There is no other God Рnot a true and living God.  If we are to really know God, we must come to know the God whom Christ worshipped and revealed.

 

The God we are to know is the Father of glory, that is, the only true and living God, the Supreme Majesty and Sovereign Lord of the Universe – the one who is the Supreme intelligence and power of the universe and who has created all and rules over all – the one who is omnipotent (all powerful), omnipresent (present everywhere), and so expansive that His very being and presence reaches out beyond the stars and embraces all that is or ever will be – the one who declares that He has “set His glory above the heavens”. (Psalm 8:1)
This is the God we are to know. As stated, He is the only living and true God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the God of glory. Saints, we must grow more and more in the KNOWLEDGE of Him; we must gain an ever-increasing KNOWLEDGE of Him. Remember, the basis of knowing God is FAITH and LOVE.
Keep in mind “There remaineth yet very much land to be possessed” (Joshua 13:1) – People Matter.
P.S. to be continued…

 

Much Love,

Because He is – I am
