Yet You Have Not Come to Know Me?

Yet You Have Not Come to Know Me?

Our life  here on earth  can be  quite the challenge.     There are all sorts  of false religions  and false doctrines  floating around.     We have  this inkling  that we should come  to know the truth,  so that the truth  might set us free.     But,  we really should  open our eyes,  so we can see  the truth.

It’s like  what the apostle Philip learned  in John 14:8-11,

Philip said  to Him, “Lord,  show us the Father,  and it is enough  for us.”     

Jesus said to him,  “Have I been so long  with you,  and yet  you have not come  to know Me,  Philip?      He who has seen Me  has seen the Father;  how can you say,  ‘Show us the Father’?      Do you not believe  that I am  in the Father,  and the Father is  in Me?      The words that I say  to you  I do not speak  on My own initiative,  but the Father abiding  in Me  does His works.      Believe Me  that I am  in the Father  and the Father is  in Me;  otherwise believe  because of the works themselves.        

If we are troubled  by whether or not  Jesus really is  God in the flesh,  we need  to carefully examine all  of Jesus’ teachings  in the New Testament.     Then,  if we’re still not sure,  we need  to look  at the verified works  of Jesus.

Most important are  His teachings.     We need  to connect the Old Testaments  words  of God  to the New Testament  fulfillment  of prophecies.     Psalm 119:130 expresses this  by saying,

The unfolding  of Your words  gives light;
It gives understanding  to the simple.

We are all “simple”  because there is so much  we all need  to understand.     But,  as we study  God’s word  in the Bible  from beginning  to end,  we will  begin  to see the “light”  and know  that Jesus is God  in the flesh,  come down  to redeem us  from our sins.

Believing  Jesus saves us  from our sins,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  Your eternal word  leads us  to Your salvation.”

Love,
