Just as the people in the time of Jesus walking upon this earth beheld the glory of God, Christians today can really know the Lord. The life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus means that God acted decisively to save people from sin and eternal death. The God who saves people in Christ is the God of His redeemed, those who are under the blood of Jesus Christ. And when sinners find Jesus Christ as both Savior and Lord they are allowed to come to God because of the cost paid at Calvary. These Christians are under the new covenant of whom the writer of the Book of Hebrews wrote about. Hebrews 8:10-12 says “…I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest. For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.” (Hebrews 8:10-12)
All those who enter into the new covenant and are interested in all that the Lord is doing in the time we live today, can become acquainted with the Lord; learn His character and determine His will for them in this life and service unto Him. Each child of God can have his own intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus. As a spokesman for the Lord, Ezekiel wrote, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.” (Ezekiel 36:26-27)
Every true born again Christian may enjoy God, through the Holy Spirit be drawn to things of God, enjoy fellowship with Christians, and be given revelation from the Bible. The more they discipline their spiritual hearts and set their minds to prayerfully read and study the Word of God, the more the Holy Spirit will give them illumination of Jesus Christ, reveal God’s will to them and be enabled to accomplish all He leads them to do.
The religious may be captivated by lights and the Holiday Celebration. However, true Christians proclaim at Christmas and all year round, “I know the Lord!”
