Last Saturday and throughout the week, we have finished reading Chapter 11 of The Inward Knowledge. We need to know God, not just knowing God by His doings or His ways, but also knowing God Himself.
John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Him whom You have sent, Jesus Christ.
Whenever we taste God from within, we have an enjoyment and taste that cannot be obtained by the knowledge of God according to His doings or ways from without. … Thank God, He can be tasted!
Psalm 34:8 says: “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good.”
The inner sense given to us by the law of life and the teaching of the anointing enables us to know God. Yet, even though this inner sense may be absolutely real and true, still it needs to be proved by the teaching and the principle of the Scripture.
Since from within and without we have many ways and means to know God, we can “be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to walk worthily of the Lord unto all pleasing, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God” (Col. 1:9-10)
May we continue to have an increase in the knowledge of God, grow in the life of God, until He completely occupies us.
This Saturday on 28 July we will come together and continue Chapter 12 and 13.
