Pursuit of the Holy
How To Discover the Knowledge of God
This course begins August 25th, 2020.
I believe that the greatest issue confronting the church is the lack of a living, breathing, experiential knowledge of God. A.W. Tozer said it this way: "If all the problems of heaven and earth were to confront us at once, they would be nothing compared to the overwhelming problem that we have with God. Who He is and what we are to do about Him." A.W. Tozer also said that "the thought that comes into our minds when we think of God is the most important thing about us" and "10,000 lesser problems are solved when a man or woman comes to a right understanding of God."
We often try to deal with "fruit issues" in the church. Whether it be, marriages, family, finances, evangelism, or social issues. But the greatest issue is a "root issue", and is this: what do you believe about God? The greatest need of the hour is the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God (Eph. 1:17). God is restoring to the church the preeminence of Jesus, the centrality of Jesus, and the supremacy of Jesus above everything else.
In this course, I am going to walk you through the greatest burden that has laid hold of my life, and its over the knowledge of God. Jesus defined eternal life as "knowing the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom He's sent". God wants to deliver the church from religion and bring her into the spirit of revelation. In this course we are going to walk through our need for the spirit of revelation by looking at God on His throne, and the person of Jesus, and going on a journey to discover the knowledge of God.
