GOD'S WHIRLWIND OF CHARIOTS AND FIRE









    There are many things you can actually KNOW for a certainty about the things of God. Let's take a look at some of them. You will see how exciting getting into the Word of God can be.

    The word KNOW means to have something clearly and securely in the mind, memory or understanding.


    AS JOB OF OLD KNEW
    SO CAN YOU KNOW THE REDEEMER LIVES
    AND THAT HE SHALL STAND IN THE LAST DAYS ON THE EARTH


    One of the most astounding passages of Scripture is Job l9:25-27 - 'For I KNOW that my Redeemer liveth, and that He shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.'

    The Book of Job is most likely one of the earliest writings of Scripture. Can you imagine this old Saint of God, way back in ancient history, writhing in pain from his sores and not having the hindsight of the Cross of Calvary, declaring, 'I KNOW my Redeemer lives and that He will stand on the earth in the last days and I will see Him for myself with my own eyes?' His conviction of KNOWING that he had a Living Redeemer and that he would see HIM in Person in the Last Days, is confirmed by John the Apostle in the Book of Revelation, which was written around 90 A.D. John writes in Revelation 22:4 that the Servants of God shall see the Redeemer's face. It is also interesting to note that Job's desire, 'that my words were now written! oh that they were printed in a book!', expressed in Job l9:23, has been fulfilled.

    If Job, way back in ancient history, could KNOW he had a Living Redeemer that he would see some day, how much more you can KNOW it, with all the Scripture available to you today, including Job's Book.

    YOU CAN KNOW THE REDEEMER

    2 Timothy 1:12 - 'For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I KNOW Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day.' ---- Paul the Apostle was saying that he KNEW Jesus Christ, the One he believed in. In Philippians 3:10, he again states his commitment to KNOWING Christ.

    If Paul could KNOW Christ, others can, too. Paul's secret to KNOWING Christ is revealed in Philippians 1:21 where he says 'For to me to live is Christ.' What love he had for his Savior! Do you have that kind of commitment, is your whole life centered around Christ?

    Paul says in 1 Timothy 1:12 that not only did he KNOW Whom he believed, but was also convinced that Christ would hold it all together for him until the Last Day. (Sound like Job of Old?) Paul holds out this same confidence for others in Philippians l:6 ---- 'Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:' ---- Has Christ begun a good work in you? When you get discouraged, remember, Christ is holding it all together for you, too. How long will He do that? Until the Last Day.

    YOU CAN KNOW
    CHRIST APPEARED ON EARTH TO TAKE AWAY YOUR SIN

    1John 3:5 - 'And ye KNOW that He appeared to take away our sins; and in Him is no sin.' ---- You can KNOW, Dear Friend, that sinless Christ came to this Earth to Live for you, to Die for you, to take away your sins and to Rise for you. He was Born a Savior, (Luke 2:11) nailed sin to His Cross, (Colossians 2:14) washed sins in His own blood, (Revelation 1:5) and arose that you might also rise in victory over death (1 Corinthians 15:55,57).

    YOU CAN KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST

    Ephesians 3:19 - 'And to KNOW the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.' ---- How do you get to KNOW the love of Christ? Go back to verses l7 and l8 ---- 'That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;' ----

    You come to KNOW the love of Christ when He lives in your heart by faith. Who says 'Christ in your heart' isn't Scriptural? It is right there in verse l7!!!! Also take a look at Revelation 3:20 ----'Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.' --- Come in where? In your life, your heart, your spirit and your soul. Can you imagine such intimacy, spiritually supping and fellowshipping with the Creator and Savior of the world? If that isn't love, what is? That is how you can become rooted and grounded in Christ's love and that is how you can come to understand how encompassing His love is.


    YOU CAN KNOW THAT YOU KNOW CHRIST

    How can you KNOW that you KNOW Christ? By keeping His commandments. Do you keep His commandments? ----1 John 2:3 - 'And hereby we do KNOW that we KNOW Him, if we keep His commandments.' ---- What are His commandments? Matthew 22:35-40 gives us two. ---- 'Then one of them, .... asked Him a question, .... saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.' ---- These two cover a lot of ground, where do you stand in the line of obedience to these two?

    Another way of checking yourself out is found in Ephesians 5:17. It encourages believers to understand what the will of the Lord is, or in other words, what His commandments are. If you want to understand, you have to apply yourself, that means reading and studying God's Word. God's Word is a storehouse of spiritual treasure, everything you need to KNOW is in there.


    YOU CAN KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE

    1John 5:13 - 'These things have I written unto you that believe on the Name of the Son of God; that ye may KNOW that ye have eternal life, .....' Do you believe on the Name of the Son of God, Jesus Christ? If you do, this Book of 1 John was written for you, that you may KNOW that you have Eternal Life. You are loved by God so much that He has provided this assurance for you through His Word. What peace you can have as you continue to follow Christ in your walk of life.


    YOU CAN KNOW THAT YOU DWELL IN CHRIST AND HE IN YOU

    1John 4:13 - 'Hereby KNOW we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He hath given us of His Spirit.' ---- Galatians 4:6 says that God plants the Spirit of His Son into your heart, so that it cries Abba, Father. Romans 8:l6 says His Spirit bears witness with your spirit that you are a child of God. So - does your inner being cry out to God with the knowledge that He is your Father? Does your inner being have the conviction of God's Spirit that you are His child? If it does, you can be assured that Christ is in you and you in Him. May your inner being be exalted as you understand this exciting and thrilling truth.


    YOU CAN KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD

    Romans 8:28 - 'And we KNOW that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.' ---- Do you love God? Are you called according to His purpose? If your answers are yes, then all things will work together for you for good.

    What about the calling? Here are two verses that may help you get a proper perspective on it.

    2 Timothy 1:9 - 'Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,' ---- Titus 3:5 also makes it clear that salvation is according to God's mercy, not according to anyone's good works. John 14:6 is a reminder that Jesus said no one comes to the Father but through Him.

    2 Peter 1:10 - 'Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, (verses 5-7) ye shall never fall:' (Verses 5-7 - 'And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.') When called by God, you have a responsibility to live up to your calling. How? By exercising diligence, faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, godliness, brotherly kindness and love in your life, and if you do, it is a sure sign that you love God and are called according to His purpose.


    YOU CAN KNOW YOU SHALL BE LIKE CHRIST WHEN HE APPEARS

    1John 3:2 - 'Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we KNOW that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.' ---- You can KNOW that when Jesus Christ appears on Earth again, and as you see Him, you shall be like Him. What a beautiful promise from God, you will be like Him, yes, you will be like Him. That means you will not sin or fail any more. What a blessing that will be. Then it gets better, Revelation 3:21 says ---- 'He is set down with His Father in His throne and to him that overcometh will He grant to sit with Him in His Throne.' ---- Did you read that right? "Sit with Him in His Throne." Read that again. "Sit with Him in His Throne." Can you imagine such a thing?
