Knowing versus Believing .
Jer_9:6 Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me, saith יהוה / Yahweh.
Jer 9:23 Thus saith יהוה / Yahweh, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
Jer 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I am יהוה / Yahweh which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith יהוה / Yahweh .
Jer_24:7 And I will give them an heart to know Me, that I am יהוה / Yahweh : and they shall be My people, and I will be their Elohim(God): for they shall return unto Me with their whole heart.
Jer_31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know יהוה / Yahweh : for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith יהוה / Yahweh : for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
#1 Knowing יהוה / Yahweh > Definition; ” have developed a relationship with (someone) through meeting and spending time with them;..” (walking in His holy spirit)
#2 Believing in יהוה / Yahweh> Definition;” to credit upon the authority or testimony of another; to be persuaded of the truth of something upon the declaration of another, or upon evidence furnished by reasons, arguments, and deductions of the mind, or by other circumstances, than personal knowledge… ” (walking in a flesh)
#1 We His people/sheep do not believe in יהוה / Yahweh, for we know He exists by our own relationship with Him, by seeing and hearing our alive great Father/Shepherd יהוה / Yahweh.
#2 But heathen/pagan dumb idols worshipers must believe in their idols existence. Why? For none of them ever saw nor heard their pagan gods. It is why the heathen believes that their gods exist;
Muslim believe > Allah exists, but none of then saw nor heard him/her alive.
Hindu believe > in Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva,.. but none of them saw not heard them alive.
Egyptian believe > in Trinity of Osiris Isis and Horus,.. but none of them saw nor heard them alive.
Christian believe > in nameless Trinity of god the father (what is his name ?), god the son (what is his name?), god the holy spirit ( what is his name ?), but none of them knows their names nor saw not heard them.
Communist believe> in Trinity of Marx, Engels, and Lenin, but none of them saw nor heard them alive. Atheist believe > in Santa Claus, goddess Mother Earth,… but none of them saw nor heard them alive.
What is your belief? Are your idols alive did you see or hear them? Prove it, and share it that we may be like you and worship/pray to your dead pagan idols also.
