DO I REALLY KNOW THIS
OR NOT
 
  
 
 
 
      
     In Genesis 15:6-9 (AMP), we see that Abram is being given a special offer from God, The Father and that is to join Him and be a part of Himself and His Kingdom.  The Bible makes it very clear that Abram already believed in, trusted in and was in reliance of God.  But Abram wanted something deeper, he wanted to KNOW God.  Let's look.  "And he [Abram] believed in (trusted in, relied on, remained steadfast to) the Lord, and He counted it to him as righteousness (right standing with God). 7 And He said to him, I am the [same] Lord, Who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldees to gve you this land as an inheritance. 8 But he [Abram] said, Lord God, by what shall I know that I shall inherit it? 9 And He said to him, Bring to Me a heifer three years old, a she-goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon." 

     What is happening here?  Abram wanted to have something with God that was beyond believing in, relying on and trusting in, because Abram already did these three with God.  Abram wanted to KNOW God!  The Word "know" here is yada' (yaw-dah').  It is the same word used in scripture for "And Adam KNEW Eve as his wife, and she became pregnant and bore Cain."  Yada' is a word that means to KNOW!  Yada' or "know" is the most intimate place that you can be with God.  Abram wanted to KNOW or yada' God!  He wanted beyond the LEVEL of "believed in, trusted in and relied on."  So, to prove Himself to Abram, God answers Abram's request that He will go to the place of yada' also with him.  WOW!  And God displays His commitment and seals it forever in a Blood Covenant Ceremony by walking, Himself, through the cut in half animals that Abram prepared.  God showed His eternal intimacy with Abram and his descendants by walking in blood Himself!  God now is in yada' or the place of "know" with Abram. 

     Church, there is another LEVEL that you and I can be in and abide in.  It's a LEVEL of INTIMACY that is beyond what we may have ever known.  The yada' place is beyond believing in God, trusting in God and relying on God.  Yada' is deeper, intimate, personal, self sacrificing, loyalty and obedience to God and His Word!  Yada' is sacrificing and yielding your ideas, thoughts, ways and literal life for what God says and His Ways!  Laying down your life and your ideas and your words for God's is how much you arrive and ABIDE in yada'!  

     The Amplified Translation tells us of "abide" like this, "If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you." (John 15:7 (AMP))  To "abide" means to stand for, tarry, to wait expectantly, to stay in a given place!  Bride of Christ, in order to yada' or "know" The Lord Jesus, we MUST ABIDE in Him!  We must STAND FOR Him and His Word!  We must TARRY and WAIT EXPECTANTLY for Him and His Word to manifest!  We must STAY IN A GIVEN PLACE with Him!  We must STAY IN THE PLACE OF FAITH FOR WHAT HE HAS SAID AND PROMISED in His Word and not just say and do what we think is right, popular and what everyone else thinks and does!  To ABIDE is one of the conditions and pre-requisites of yada' or to "know" The Master!  Abiding in Jesus and The Word of God (The Bible) is True Intimacy, true yada'. (John 15:7)

     Another condition to live in the very intimate place of yada' or to "know" The Lord is to obey.  The Master tells us very clearly in John 14:15, "If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands."  That makes it pretty clear doesn't it?  If you "really love" The Master, you and I will "keep, obey" His Word.  Jesus measures our love, intimacy and yada' with Him, by our obedience to His Word!   Abraham was obedient to God and what He had promised him, to the point of his believing God over his impotent body and Sarah's dead womb! 

     Abraham believed God's Word more than what the World around him shouted and more than what his own body screamed on a daily basis!  Abraham earned the title of Father of our Faith because he yada', he "knew", HE OBEYED GOD'S WORD, therefore Abraham LOVED GOD!  Abraham "really loved" God, because he "kept and obeyed God's commands," His Word!  "He did not weaken in faith when he considered the [utter] impotence of his own body, which was as good as dead because he was about a hundred yeas old, or [when he considered] the barrenness of Sarah's [deadened] womb. 20 No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubtingly question) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God, 21 Fully satisfied and assured that God was able and mighty to keep His word and to do what He had promised." (Romans 4:19-21 (AMP))
 
 
     We Must STAY in yada'!  The Lord will know if we are truly in yada', in "KNOW" with Him, for He will be able to recognize where we are by the place of "LOVE" we are at with Him.  And again, how does The Lord measure "LOVE?"  John 14:15, "If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands."  Let's look at this even deeper. 


     In John 14:12-15, 21, 23-24 (AMP) we see Jesus telling us three (3) times that if you and I love Him, He measures it by our odedience. "I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. 13 And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My Name [as presenting all that I am], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled (through) the Son.
14 [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I AM]. 15 If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands. . . . 21 The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him] . . . 23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. 24 Anyone who does NOT [really] love Me does NOT observe and obey My teaching. And the teaching which you hear and heed is not Mine, but [comes] from the Father Who sent Me. 

     Clearly, Jesus has communicated to us that if we love Him, we obey His Word.  If we do not love Him, then we do not obey Him!  And Jesus said, "The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.]  THIS IS HUGE, CHURCH!  God is looking for His Children to not just "say" they love Him, but to show they love Him!  And how He measures my and your love is through our obedience to what The Bible says!  And the ones that show that they really love Him, HE WILL SHOW HIMSELF, REVEAL AND MANIFEST HIMSELF TO THEM AND MAKE HIMSELF SEEN AND REAL TO THEM!  If we are obeying His Word, then He sees we love Him and He said that we can do the things we have seen Him do in His Word and even greater works!  That's The DOUBLE ANOINTING WORKING CHURCH!  That's what your entire life will look like!  The Church will be manifesting all over this World doing the things we saw Jesus do in The Bible and even greater works!  Yet, we have to BE IN A SPECIFIC PLACE OF "KNOW" and yada' and love and obedience with The Lord for the manifestations of The DOUBLE ANOINTING!
  
     We have to "KNOW" or yada' The Master!  We have to be intimate and abide in Him!  We have "to stay in the given place" of yada' just like Abraham did.  We have to OBEY His Word!  We have to say what He says about the matter (Whether personal or cultural,) call it what God calls it in His Word!  We have to OBEY His Word to "KNOW" or yada' and abide in Him!  Our position of intimacy and Love with The Master will determine if we will have the right to the DOUBLE ANOINTING!  THE DOUBLE ANOINTING WILL REQUIRE SOMETHING FROM YOU! 
  
     Let's begin living our lives right now by truly taking some time and asking ourselves these hard but very important questions.
 
 
"How much am I disobeying God's Word?"

"What are the areas of my life that I still live the way I want to in?"

"What have I read in The Bible that I see is against God, yet I am still supporting or not taking a stand against?"
 
"Am I using my tongue to speak the opposite of what God says in His Word?"

"Am I reading God's Word enough?"

"Am I spending the time that I should be with The Lord?"

"I know God is measuring my Love for Him by my odedience, HOW MUCH DO I REALLY LOVE THE LORD?"

     Don't just read over those questions Church!  ANSWER THEM!  REALLY ANSWER THEM!  Get Before God and allow Him to show you where you are with your Love to Him!  And if you've never given Him your life, don't let another year pass you by without Living your life and Giving your life to Him!  Just say these words and mean them with all your heart. 

Jesus, I'm tired of trying to do life without you.  I surrender to You, Sir!  Please forgive me of all of the wrong that I've done, come into me and save me.  I decide to make You The Lord and Master of my life.  Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit in Jesus Name, Amen!
 
 
     If you said those words and meant them with all your heart, you are born again and in right standing with God!  It's amazing isn't it?  Let us know here at JCM, we want to rejoice with you and send you some FREE RESOURCES to help you get started or re-started with your walk with God!  Let's LOVE God more this year than we ever have in our lives!  Let's position ourselves to operate for ourselves and for others in The DOUBLE ANOINTING Beloved of God!  This is our year to accomplish The Kingdom's Agenda, not our own in Jesus Name!  We Love You!  Covenant Partners and Friends, we are WITH YOU and are MARCHING RIGHT BESIDE OF YOU!  Thank you for placing this Letter in someone else's hand!  You are wonderful!  Until next month, take a good look at yourself through the mirror of The Word and you . . .
