How intimate are you with God?
Jesus didn’t come to save those who were saved, He came for the lost and hurting!! But even in the Church there are those who are hurting that needs a spiritual, emotional and physical healing! When we get so intimate with God that we not only know Him in a deep way, but that He knows us in an intimate way, then we will receive the healing that we need!
In Matthew it says that Jesus spoke to some and said that in the last day, they will stand before God and God will tell them to depart for He didn’t KNOW them:
Matthew 7:21- 23;
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
The reason why God will reject these men is because their relationship is based on the Church to know God, instead of having an intimate relationship with God Himself!! Notice they said, “Have WE not …” They didn’t say, LORD, I knew you in such a way that You spoke through me and used me to speak prophesies and cast out devils, etc…
The men in Matthew 7 were relying on what others did for God to get them into the kingdom!! God is saying He must KNOW US in order for US to KNOW Him!!
So why don’t you ask God yourself? Ask Him if He knows you the way He wants to!! And then get to KNOW HIM more intimately!!
I guarantee you that if you do, your life will be more complete, more fulfilled, and you will know LOVE, JOY AND PEACE like you have never known before!!
BELIEVE ME — IT WORKS!!
God’s Best to those who Believe!!
