“Here is something that I got from the conference concerning knowing God. We can know God with experience and without experience; these are two kinds of knowledge. One is inward and the other is outward. When we talk about knowing God, we are talking about simply knowing God Himself. Thus, we need to touch Him. We need to touch Him with the right organ, which is our human spirit. He is now in us as the Spirit in our spirit. We also need a close and personal relationship with God. This is to pursue Him inwardly. This may not be easy so we need much practice in our contact with the Lord and the exercise of our spirit.
I appreciated the following example: If Cain had known God, he would have turned to Him when he became angry instead of killing his brother. We may also be like this, forgetting about God and trying to solve our problems with our own reasoning.
By our practicing to contact God, eventually, it will not only be ‘I who live’, but, ‘Christ who lives in me’.” – Kevin
“The Lord showed me that first we must know God. We must be open to see a vision of who God is– then we can even gain God. We will be able to eat Him as the tree of life. Eventually, He also wants us to know that we’re His sons. As sons, we can come to God as our Father.” – David
“This has been my best college conference so far. We saw that the Trinity, although having ‘three’, has to be ‘one’. We really need to give ourselves to know Him. We should even get to know His ways. Sometimes we don’t get answers to our prayers because we didn’t ask Him according to His ways. We need to take initiative to know His ways, especially in the morning. Otherwise, throughout the day, we’ll just be playing catch-up. I’m thankful I got to see the contrast between Lot and Noah. Lot just followed Abraham, but Noah followed God directly. So with Lot, it’s like He loved God, but not.” – Anda
