Why the world does not know GOD
The world believes in many Gods but it does not know the REAL God, the TRUE God, the God of the Bible. Sadly most Christians also do not know the true God of the Bible, they do not know Jesus Christ, because they do not OBEY Him. They DENY Him, they disobey His words.
If we OBEY the words of Jesus Christ He will REVEAL Himself to us as He promised. He promised the Holy Spirit, His own Spirit to those who OBEY Him and those who OBEY Him will truly get to KNOW Him as GOD. They will have revelation from Him. Jesus Christ reveals Himself in, to, and through those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His words as recorded in the gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Those who repent from their evil ways and who are baptized in water, who go after Jesus Christ with all their heart, He baptizes them in the Holy Spirit as first happened on the day of Pentecost that we read about in the book of Acts. Most believers have not received the Holy Spirit and that is why they do not KNOW Jesus Christ . He is not revealed in and through them because they refuse to obey Him.
They refuse to repent, they refuse to stop sinning, they refuse to go after Jesus Christ, they refuse to be holy, they refuse to be baptized in water. They deny and reject Jesus Christ and that is why they do not know Him.
If we obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized in water and go after Jesus, seek Him with all our heart, He will FILL us with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. He will give us heavenly tongues with which to worship and praise God. that is the EVIDENCE of receiving the baptism in the Holy Spirit but most Christians in their own wisdom DENY the Spirit of God. They deny Jesus Christ and that is why they do not know Him. If we obey Him and seek Him we will find Him and we will KNOW Him because He will reveal Himself to us and in us.
Do you know God? Do you KNOW Jesus Christ? Is He revealed IN and THROUGH you? Are you the LIGHT in the world, this dark world where people do not have hope because they do not know God? Do you have HOPE because you know God, because you know Jesus? Do you KNOW the living God, Jesus Christ?
May Jesus bless you.
