'How can we turn our knowledge about God into knowledge of God? The rule for doing so is simple but demanding. It is that we turn each truth that we learn about God into matter for mediation before God, leading to prayer and praise to God. 'Knowing God is a more complex business than knowing another person. If we spend the rest of our lives at it, there will still be more to comprehend. But the marvel of it is that God's riches are opened up to us to explore.' J. I. Packer Join J. I. Packer on a year of discovery. Using excerpts from his bestselling book Knowing God, each day you'll read a Scripture and a brief passage from Knowing God. There are ideas for prayer and reflection to help you respond to God as you journey into knowing him more. There is no greater adventure.
When I make an interpretation, I draw from all my knowledge and experience. I believe that truthand God are always in agreement. I care not where the truth comes from. It is my desire to knowtruth and apply truth to life. I also believe that all falsehood is against God. I use the term Satanto refer to falsehood or deception. I believe that truth enhances life and that falsehood takes awayfrom Life.I believe that we are to make learners of people. Whatever we do with our lives we willaccomplish more if we seek knowledge, understanding and wisdom. I hope that by reading andthinking about what I have written, you, the reader, will live a more abundant and more enjoyablelife. I hope you come to know the truth that sets one free. May you become free from ignorance,superstition, falsehood, and ill will. May these writings help you to turn from Satan unto God.
The apostle to the Gentiles presents a dilemma when in 1Cor 1,21 he asserts that human beings did not know God and in Rom 1,21 that they did. Consistent truth emerges as both of these verses resonate with echoes from Eden and Calvary. Thus, both pericopes in the present study point to the cross as the place where human cognizance of the divine happens most profoundly. The former verse brings to the fore the need for a domain of faithful obedience as a foundation for the human divine relantionship...The word of the cross grasps Christians by the power of the Holy Spirit. Hence human knowledge of God the ultimate goal involving both the cross and the creation, springs from the very life of the Trinity.

Contemporary Jews often find meaning in Judaism's family and communal orientation, its beautiful rituals, its enriching culture, its sense of ethnic rootedness, and its moral values. For the classical Jewish tradition, however, all of these features of Judaism depend on a belief in God. Since many modern Jews do not know what to make of that belief, it is often ignored. They may be inspired by Judaism's high regard for education and its passion for justice, but their belief in God rests on childhood images of the Almighty. They are often embarrassed and uneasy, for they sense that their attachment to Judaism may be based upon intellectual quicksand. Motivated by just such feelings, Rabbi Elliot Dorff probes what we as adults can know about God through human reason, human and Divine words, and human and Divine action. Without assuming a background in philosophy, he skillfully takes us through some of the major philosophical options and conundrums in using each of these sources of knowledge about God and the images of God that result. With remarkable clarity and inspiring honesty, Rabbi Dorff's exploration results in a vibrant Jewish faith, one that takes due regard for both the emotional and intellectual sides of our being. Dorff's own personal quest, artfully woven throughout this spiritually uplifting volume, aids the reader to make his or her own Judaism emotionally satisfying and intellectually sound. The result is a Judaism that can be for the modern reader what it is for the author: the product of a love of God 'with all one's heart, with all one's soul, and with all one's might.'
Laurel Keyes discusses the importance of KNOWING. Without knowing that one has a particular place in life there is no security and the life is lived in anxiety and helplessness. Dependence upon other people or a government or outside sources are always uncertain. Only a close association with the Spirit-within can provide a feeling of belonging, of being guided, cared for and loved.The question arises, ?Can we know? How do we Know?? Man is a thinking creature. By the very nature of his ability to imagine and create he is displaying his divine inheritance. Therefore he is capable of knowing Truth. Until he does there is no real contentment for him. In all of his seeking for admiration, for love and power and success or escape, there is the driving urge to know. ?What am I? Who am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed To do??An accumulation of knowledge about things is not knowing. That comes either from experience or intuitive flashes. True knowing, as any of you who have experienced those lightning-like breakthroughs, comes from a deep intuitive certitude.This booklet will help you to know the answers to these questions and take you deeper within yourself for your Spiritual growth.
People fast for many reasons . . . to break an addiction . . . to seek God for healing . . . to discover the answer to a lingering problem . . . and some fast for revival. But the greatest reason to fast is to get to know God intimately and to feed on the Bread of Life. The book in your hands is not an instruction manual on the methods of fasting or on how to pray. Rather, Dr. Elmer Towns describes the spirit of fasting that leads to an intimate knowing of Jesus Christ. He will show you that fasting is: tasting the goodness of the Lord. waiting in God's presence to become like Him. coming to Jesus to enjoy His presence. drinking from God's presence to get spiritual satisfaction. learning to discipline yourself even as Jesus did. growing spiritually into the image of Jesus. gaining spiritual perception of God's world. entering God's rest as you know His heart. Guaranteed to Create a Spiritual Hunger and Thirst Within Your Soul That Only God Can Satisfy.
