1 D yu knw Jesus Persnally? This sectin lks at why it is imprtant t knw the Lrd Jesus Christ persnally. When yu lk at the multitude r peple wh knw OF Jesus whm He des NOT knw intimately, it is amazing that He wuld pen himself up t anyne. Hwever, yu can see frm scripture that He reveals Himself t thse wh will bey Him. We will take a lk at that and mre. Authr: Pierre Dungee

2 WARNING!!! We will warn yu that what we are presenting is ging against the dctrinal teachings f many denminatins. Many are ging t excriate this site because we are nt fllwing their dctrine. Many times, the peple wh are ging t say we are teaching ' a false gspel' wuld be the nes that say that they have read the bible frm cver t cver multiple times and will claim t be the 'authrity' n the bible because they did that. S, If yu think we are full f it, that's fine. That is expected. Many will call this a 'wrks based salvatin' dctrine, which in effect it is NOT. It is being bedient t The Lrd Jesus Christ as we are shwing that we lve Him thrugh ur bedience t HIM, ding what He is asking US t d. Nbdy is frcing yu t believe anything, Christian, s settle dwn. It will be YOUR salvatin n the line, s use this time yu have t make yur electin SURE and wrk ut YOUR salvatin with fear and trembling by cnfirming it with the Lrd Jesus Christ directly YOURSELF, since Jesus is ging t be judging yu when yu die anyway. 2

3 Many say they 'KNOW' Jesus, but they d nt Befre we start this narrative, we want t pint ut that many peple will say that they 'knw' Jesus. Many Christians will tell yu that in a heartbeat. Hwever, the Lrd Jesus Christ knws which peple are His, and He is saying that many peple say 'Lrd, Lrd' but He desn't knw them. Let's take a lk at what the wrd 'knw' means first. T knw is defined as fllws: verb (mainly transitive) knws, knwing, knew (njuː), knwn (nəʊn) (als intransitive; may take a clause as bject) t be r feel certain f the truth r accuracy f (a fact, etc) t be acquainted r familiar with t have a familiarity r grasp f, as thrugh study r experience: the Bible defines knw as: t knw 3

4 (Qal) t knw t knw, learn t knw t perceive t perceive and see, find ut and discern t discriminate, distinguish t knw by experience t recgnise, admit, acknwledge, cnfess t cnsider t knw, be acquainted with t knw (a persn carnally) t knw hw, be skilful in t have knwledge, be wise (Niphal) t be made knwn, be r becme knwn, be revealed t make neself knwn t be perceived t be instructed (Piel) t cause t knw (Pal) t cause t knw (Pual) t be knwn knwn, ne knwn, acquaintance (participle) (Hiphil) t make knwn, declare (Hphal) t be made knwn (Hithpael) t make neself knwn, reveal neself S let us agree that t knw is t: t be acquainted r familiar with t have a familiarity r grasp f, as thrugh study r experience: t discriminate, distinguish t knw by experience t recgnise, admit, acknwledge, cnfess t cnsider t knw, be acquainted with t knw (a persn carnally) t knw hw, be skilful in 4

5 t have knwledge, be wise Yes, we have highlighted t knw t mean intimate. In the Bible, yu can see the wrd 'knw' is used t describe an intimate encunter. Nw, in the grander scheme f things, we can see hw the Lrd can 'knw' a persn. He explains this in the wrd, as seen here: Genesis 4:1 - And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she cnceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gtten a man frm the LORD. Genesis 4:25 - And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a sn, and called his name Seth: Fr Gd, said she, hath appinted me anther seed instead f Abel, whm Cain slew. S what is the pint f all f this? We want t shw yu that when yu 'knw' smene, yu are intimate with them. Yu share with them; yu laugh with them; yu cry with them; yu g thrugh with them; yu spend time with them. 5

6 Let's Use Katy Perry As an example Let's say that yu are a big Katy Perry fan. Yu have all f her CDs; yu have all f her hits n yur ipd. Yu decide t g t her cncert when she is in yur city. Yu enjy the cncert, and then yu decide yu want t be clse t yur idl, s yu g backstage. When yu get there, there is a burly guy standing there wh stps yu. He wants t knw what yu are ding back there. Yu say that yu 'knw' Katy and yu want t see her. Nw, in this example, yu have never met Katy Perry, but yu knw OF her. If anyne were t ask her wh yu were, she wuld nt knw. Why? It is because yu have nt been a part f her inner circle. Yu nly knw OF her, but she des nt knw yu frm anyne. Yu culd be an axe murderer fr all that she knws. Yu d NOT knw her intimately. Yu are nt family; yu are nt related t her; yu are sme persn that wants t get clse t her. Mst Christians are like this with Jesus. They knw OF Him, but they d nt knw Him persnally. When they die, they will call ut t Jesus and He will NOT answer. 6

7 Why? He desn't knw yu intimately. This is why the Lrd Jesus will say t many wh will call ut t Him that they knw Him, and He will tell them t 'g away, I never knew yu.' Can yu see this, Christian? As an aside, intercede and pray fr Katy Perry, as she sld her sul t the devil, and she will g t hell and be lst withut a huge utpuring f intercessin frm peple wh want her t repent and turn away frm the rad she is ging n. By repenting, Katy Perry will be giving up her fame, her stardm, all f the mney, and the 'peple' arund her, ging back t being a mdest persn, but at least she will nt burn in hell fr eternity. She will need t beg The Lrd Jesus Christ t take her back after she had walked away frm Him many years ag. The devil will cntinue t suck the life right ut f her and thrw her away like an range peel when he is dne with her. 7

8 Thse wh d NOT bey Jesus will NEVER be knwn by Him This is where mst Christians get lst. Mst Christians are NOT bedient t the Lrd Jesus Christ. Here is why they are nt bedient: They have never fllwed Him, They have never given their lives fully t Him. They have never beyed His cmmands. They have never given their bdy t Jesus as a living sacrifice. They have never talked t Jesus after they went t the altar t cnfess their sins; They have never yielded their lives t Jesus, even thugh they prmised they wuld at the altar; They have never talked t Jesus abut anything; They have never cnsulted with Jesus abut anything; They have never given up cntrl f their lives and they run their lives as they want t, nt as Jesus wanting them t. Can yu nw see hw Jesus desn't knw them? Can yu nw see hw these Christians deluded themselves int believing that they were with Jesus when they were nt? This is the trap that the Once Saved, Always Saved 8

9 Christians fall int. If they really knew Jesus, they culd ask Him t cnfirm that 'Eternal Security', and they wuld find ut real quick that 'Eternal Security' is NOT f Him. They culd clear up the Once Saved, Always Saved debate in less than 10 minutes if they wuld at least talk t Jesus nce in a while. Since these Christians are 'assuming' that Jesus ' knws their heart', they are missing ut, and will be in fr a rude awakening when they are judged by Him. Jesus can see that their hearts are as black as st and increasingly wicked. 9

10 Have yu ever heard f this teaching befre, Christian? That is OK - we knw that yur church has never taught yu this!! S, Christian, we will challenge yu t d this - G t Jesus directly RIGHT NOW and ask Him if what is shwn here is true. Use this as a means t start a cnversatin with The Lrd Jesus Christ and sit with Him and ask Him questins. Start with (asking ut lud): Jesus, is what I just read true? He will answer yu, Christian, and NOW yu will be n the true rad t salvatin, knwing fr SURE if yu are ging t make it r nt, as Jesus wuld have tld yu. Keep talking with Him. Get t knw Him and He will start t reveal Himself t yu. Yu need t find ut fr yurself and wrk ut YOUR salvatin fr YOU, as the scriptures tell us t. As a part f yur salvatin, it is recmmended that yu FORGIVE the pastrs and the churches that were sending yu t hell. Fr many pastrs, this is what they were taught in the seminary. Many 'pastrs' that pastr a church dn't even knw Jesus and are nt authrized t be a pastr, as Jesus did nt send them. Frgive them and pray fr them s they may escape damnatin by repenting f their sin f misleading many peple. 10

11 In clsing, we want t give yu an EXACT QUOTE we gt frm Jesus Himself: "Disciples f mine will make it int my Kingdm; Christians will NOT." Take heed, Christian, and dn't just blw this ff. What is being presented here is IMPORTANT!! Read and understand what the Lrd Jesus Christ is saying t all f us. As we always say, d nt take anything we say as the gspel; ALWAYS cnfirm what yu are reading r hearing by running it by the Lrd Jesus Christ yurself. Keep talking t Jesus and He will respnd t yu. Have Him explain WHY what is being said is true. Talk with the Lrd Jesus Christ and get t knw Him persnally. 11
