Getting to Know Jesus
By Harlan Stilwell
“He came to that which belonged to Him [to His own – His domain, creation, things, world] and they who were His own did not receive Him and did not welcome Him.”
God Desires that His children understand His word. He wants you to seek Him, to love Him and lean not unto your own understanding. Many believers are so independent that they forget about the Lord God who brought them out; and not only forget Him, but have no relationship with Him. But He wants you to know Him. He wants you to KNOW WHO HE IS and that’s why we are teaching on this series about Jesus, Yashua Hammashea. That is his name. He is the son of the Living God, who came to bear your sin and give you gifts, good gifts, not to give you corruption, not to give you poverty, not to give you sickness, but to heal you and deliver you from the vile and fiery darts of the wicked one.
My Brothers and Sisters, this is a new season in which God will open the eyes of your understanding to the truth that you may stand in the midst of adversity. You can stand even though the winds are blowing and the waves are beating all around you.
Jesus was in a boat asleep when a storm arose. His disciples, for fear of drowning, called unto Him. He is the God of comfort, the God of peace. When you go through a storm, you are to understand that He is Jehovah Shalon you peace. He will give you peace that passes all understanding when you seek first the Kingdom of God; when you know who you are and walk according to His Word.
Many are tossed to and fro by every wind and doctrine because they have only a form of godliness. When a crisis comes into their life, they forget what He has done for them.
Do you think it was easy for Father God to send His son and watch Him bleed and die, to watch him be wounded, watch him be spit upon and not respected and then the people turn away and say, “Give us Barabbas?” No! No! It was not easy for Him, but He had a plan. Do you understand that? His plan is eternal. His plan is for you. If He called you to preach, you’re going to preach! If He called you to be a healer, you’re going to lay hands on the sick and they will recover. If He has called you to have a mate, He will perfect it.
Understand that as you seek first the Kingdom of God, the revelation knowledge of his word will abound and no longer will you be blinded to the glorious truth of the gospel for He has given us the Keys of Knowledge and His Spirit. And the Sons of God are now led by the Spirit if God because the Kingdom of God does live and abide mightily in you.
Paul spoke of the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of the Kingdom that was to be given to believers. (Eph. 1:17). Jesus said that “I am the way, the truth, and the life” and if you seek first the Kingdom of God, all these other things will be added. If you don’t have the blessings which He has made available in your life, could it be that you are not seeking Him first? Could it be that you are leaning to your own understanding? See our brochure on Developing the Kingdom of God within us. (King – 102).
God loves all His Children. There is no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus. He sees your heart, your tears, and your fears. But you must understand that He is in control. He is in control of the government; He is in control of the sands and the seas.
He is in control of the wind. Did He not say that the waves shall go no further than what He allowed? Have you thought about that? He also said His thoughts towards you are more numerous than the sands of the sea.
If you truly know Him and love Him, you will allow Him to perfect your life.
