Know Him Part 2
As we continue here in Part 2 of this study, let’s see if we can see a connection.
Matthew 6:25-29 KJVS
“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?  Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
Why take thought for food, and raiment for your flesh body?
What about your spiritual body?
In Matthew Chapter 6 verse 29, we see Christ speaks about Solomon.
In 1st Kings chapter 3 , it appears that Solomon wanted to know his Heavenly Father better.
Out of more than anything in life Solomon desired wisdom from God; not for himself , but to judge the Children of Israel.
Because Solomon asked for Wisdom, and He didnt ask for it for himself, he was granted many ritches as a blessing.
Solomon became so wise ,our Heavenly Father used him to write the book of Proverbs. With Solomon we can see the Two Greatest Commandments, which I believe covers all Ten Commandments .
Let’s see what Jesus said to a scripture Lawyer that was tempting Him In the book of Matthew Chapter 22.
Matthew 22:35-38 KJVS
“Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,  Master, which is the great commandment in the law?  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment.”
Love the Lord God with all your heart by seeking Him , and since we are in the book of Proverbs let’s see what it says about Loving Our Lord with all our heart.
Proverbs 1:7-9 KJVS
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.  My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother:  For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck.”
Yep, God spoke through Solomon to let you know how to fulfill the first greatest commandment in your life.
Fear means to revere, and to reverence our Heavenly Father, means to Love Him. The Love for Him starts with desiring Knowledge. Desiring Knowledge is to desire to know Him.
Now let’s go back to the book of Matthew and see what the second greatest commandment is.
Matthew 22:39-40 KJVS
“And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
The second greatest commandment is to Love your Nieghbor as thyself, why? Because you are part of the same Body, the Body of Christ.
These two greatest commandments cover all Ten Commandments, and on these Two Greatest Commandments, hang all the Law and Prophets…wow.
We love our nieghbor by feeding, clothing , and watering the Body of Christ. We gain knowledge from our Heavenly Father, In order to do that.
Do you Know Our Heavenly Father?
1 John 2:3-5 KJVS
“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.”
Do we walk in His commandments as best as we can? Is the Love of God being perfected in us , and do we know we are in Him? The Body of Christ.
Listen , do not worry, and be concerned about your the needs of your physical body, such as food, shelter, and so on. The World is full of carnal worry and strife today.
We depend on our Heavenly Father,
Matthew 6:30-32 KJVS
“Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”
The Gentiles worry about carnal things, leave that to them. Father knows what you need, why? Because He knows you.
By Him knowing you because you are seeking, Him and His Kingdom.
Matthew 6:33 KJVS
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Seek Our Heavenly Father, and by doing that Our Heavenly Father will take care of you.
Like Solomon, if you are more concerned about receiving Knowledge and serving Gods Children, which is the Body of Christ, you’ll be fine. You may not be as physically rich as Solomon, but you will be taken care of .
God Desires Your Love,
Hosea 6:6 KJVS
“For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”
Are we getting the picture here?
Seek Him , by seeking Knowledge of Him , and ask Him to lead you to serve Him, and His Children. In doing this you will be walking in His commandments, ( its simple:)
Let’s look what Christ will say to the two groups in Matthew chapter 25.
Matthew 25:32-40 KJVS
“And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee ? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee ?  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
Let the Knowledge you receive, because of your love of our Lord Jesus Christ, take care of the Body of Christ.
Feed, by sharing the Bread of Life.
Give drink by sharing the Living Water.
Dont make Our Heavenly Father a stranger , take Him in you. The Word.
Jesus Christ is the Bread , Water, and the Knowledge of Him clothes you, and your neighbor’s ,who are the Body of Christ.
Revelation 19:7-8 KJVS
“Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints”
These fine linen garments will never fray, because they clothe your Spiritual body.
As for the other group, who are the goats.
Matthew 25:41-45 KJVS
“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:  I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.  Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?  Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.”
They wont desire to walk in our Heavenly Fathers Commandments.
However they will take in the false Christ at 666, and they will not have any part in the Body of Christ. They will become the Harlot.
Christ will have no part of them when He returns at the Seventh Trump, why? In my opinion, He never knew them.
You do not want Jesus Christ to say to you upon His return at the Seventh Trump,
Matthew 7:23 KJVS
“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Jesus Christ is the Word of God , get to know Him , and see that you don’t forget Him. Walk in His commandments.
( John Chapter 1 verses 1 through 14.)
