1 – “The URGENCY of Knowing God!”

The Truth About God, Satan, Angels, Demons, Heaven and Hell

“What is WRONG with people??!!!” The answer seems to depend on whom you ask. Most of the “experts” in the media, and many of those who are leaders in government and business and even in the church, believe the problem is with our “society,” not with the people who make up our society, our culture. They believe the lie that mankind, not God, is in control of the destiny of the human race and the planet. WE can and must “fix” this. So from the Garden of Eden forward mankind has attempted to push GOD into the background. Since the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 people have been trying to make a name for themselves, rather than proclaiming the name of God, their Creator. Spiritually dead, people without the Spirit of God search vainly for “someTHING” to make life meaningful, and some even call “it” God. But the gods created by the imagination of people are not worthy of worship. They are like a mirage in the desert that promises an oasis, but produces only dust, leaving the soul to thirst for something more! “What is wrong with people?” They don’t know God, their Creator. Because they do not know where they came from or why they are here, they live with a gnawing emptiness that can never be filled. Many have given up on the search for meaning, determining that the best option is to live for themselves. Some search for a noble cause to make themselves feel better, but in the end they arrive back where they began, and now add to their emptiness a sense of disappointment and despair. Such is the lot of those who do not know the God who has revealed Himself in His creation, in His Word and in His Son Jesus Christ! It is in KNOWING God, the one, true and only God, our Creator, that ignorance is replaced with knowledge and despair is replaced with hope. Spiritual life begins and continues with the knowledge of who God truly IS, and the realization that we were created to worship Him as we live in this world for His glory. Do you KNOW Him? Nothing is more urgent for you and the people around you than knowing God, for in knowing Him you discover LIFE, now and forever!!
