This is the most Crucial issue of Faith.
One cannot say that they Know God,
Unless they are Known by God.
The Five Foolish Virgins though that they Knew God,
But they weren't Known by God
And the Door to the Wedding Banquet was Shut to them.
The Virgins who were Ready went in with Him
To the Wedding Banquet.
AND THE DOOR WAS SHUT.
Later the others also came.
'Sir Sir! They said.
Open the Door for us!'
But He replied,
'I TELL YOU THE TRUTH,
I DON'T KNOW YOU.'
THEREFORE KEEP WATCH,
Because you do not know The Day or The Hour.
Jesus say this:
Many will say to Me on That Day,
Lord, Lord, did we not Prophesy in Your Name,
And in Your Name drive out demons
And perform many miracles?
Then I will tell them Plainly,
'I NEVER KNEW YOU.
Away from me you Evildoers!'
The Apostle Paul says this:
Formerly, when you did not Know God,
You were Slaves to those who by Nature are Not gods.
But now that you Know God—
OR RATHER ARE KNOWN BY GOD--
How is it that you are turning back
To those weak and miserable principles?
(Galatians 4:8, 9)
How Deceptive, much of what is Preached today is.
BEING KNOWN BY GOD IS THE CRITICAL ISSUE.
Knowing God and being Known by God,
Is determined by our Constant Communication with Him.
And our Complete Reliance upon Him.
The Apostle Paul admonished us to Pray Continually.
Be Joyful Always;
Give thanks in All Circumstances,
FOR THIS IS GOD'S WILL FOR YOU IN CHRIST JESUS.
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
