MORNINGTIME 2647
 
We KNOW that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. And we KNOW that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we KNOW that the Son of God is come, AND HATH GIVEN US AN UNDERSTANDING, that we may KNOW him that is True, AND WE ARE IN HIM that is True, EVEN IN HIS SON Jesus Christ. This is the True God, and Eternal Life. 1 John 5:18-20. To "Know", Thayer's Definition; to see, to perceive with the eyes, to perceive by any of the senses, to perceive, notice, discern, discover, to see, i.e. to turn the eyes, the mind, the attention to anything, to pay attention, observe, to see about something, i.e. to ascertain what must be done about it, to inspect, examine, to look at, behold, to experience any state or condition, to see i.e. have an interview with, to visit, to know, to know of anything, to know, i.e. get knowledge of, understand, perceive, of any fact, the force and meaning of something which has definite meaning, to know how, to be skilled in, to have regard for one, cherish, pay attention to Thessalonians 5:12. "And we beseech you, brethren, to KNOW them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you";   To "Understand", Thayer's Definition; The mind as a faculty of understanding, feeling, desiring, understanding, mind, i.e. spirit, way of thinking and feeling, thoughts, either good or bad. Please re-read and study these verses and definitions, as there is an Assurance here that is very easy to miss. To apply everything here to your everyday life means that you CAN KNOW that you are saved, you CAN KNOW exactly Who Jesus, the Christ is, and through Him you CAN KNOW who your Brothers and Sisters are, in Christ. Even the Lord God Almighty tells us to get to KNOW Him. You can't get any more Intimate than that. Study His Word(s). They bring Life and they are Life, and you can KNOW that you will, Be Blessed.
