The Knowledge of Christ

When you are in lack, seek to expand your knowledge of Me. When you feel restless, come into My presence to know Me. When you are broken or sick, be filled with the knowledge of Me. Seek Me, pursue Me, know Me. For in knowing Me all else is shored up and made well.

I have more to offer My Beloveds than they sometimes realize, for they keep their heads bowed down to the earth and look upon their circumstances when I invite them to lift up their heads and walk with Me on the heights – to call those things that aren’t into being, to change circumstances by first knowing how I view them.

My loves, how great I Am and how greatly I desire to fill you. Take a break from the world’s ways and stop your ears from what man says is possible and take on My views. Man’s views are limited but My views are limitless.  Add, add to the knowledge of Me. In everything that is of Me, seek more of Me for I’ve only begun to pour out and reveal Myself to you. Let your thirst be quenched with the knowledge of Me, for in Me is found abundant life.

II Peter 1:3-11

“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires. For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge;  and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But whoever does not have them is nearsighted and blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their past sins. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

II Corinthians 2:14-15

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.”

II Corinthians 4:5-6

“For what we preach is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.”

II Corinthians 10:4-5

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.  We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Ephesians 4:11-14

“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers,  to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.”

II Peter 3:17-18

“Therefore, dear friends, since you have been forewarned, be on your guard so that you may not be carried away by the error of the lawless and fall from your secure position. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen.”
