KNOWING

We have been given an incredible gift to know the One True God through the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

Psalm 119:130

The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.

1 John 5:20

And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

1 Samuel 3:21

Then the Lord appeared again in Shiloh. For the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.

1 Samuel 3:7

Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, nor was the word of the Lord yet revealed to him.

1 Samuel 3:1-10

Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no widespread revelation.  And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see, And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see, and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle of the Lord where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down, that the Lord called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!” So he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” And he said, “I did not call; lie down again.” And he went and lay down. Then the Lord called yet again, “Samuel!” So Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” He answered, “I did not call, my son; lie down again.”  (Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, nor was the word of the Lord yet revealed to him.)  And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. So he arose and went to Eli, and said, “Here I am, for you did call me.”  Then Eli perceived that the Lord had called the boy.  Therefore Eli said to Samuel, “Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He calls you, that you must say, ‘Speak, Lord, for Your servant hears.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.  And the Lord came and stood and called as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!”  And Samuel answered, “Speak, for Your servant hears.”
