GROWING IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge. of God and of Jesus our Lord  according to his divine power hath he given unto us all things that appertain unto life an godliness through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2 Peter 1:2-4).

There are two types of knowledge.

Sensual knowledge. Essential to one’s well being as a human being. It is knowledge gained through the five senses one could call is sensual knowledge and there is revelational knowledge, this is life Transformational. This is the knowledge of God This is not the knowledge that fills the head but this is knowledge that transforms the man. God is not knwon by knolwedge he is known by revelation. Revelation is where God comes to us first, he reveals himself first and with this in mind we seek him in order to "comprehend with the Saints what is the breath and length and depth and height and to know him the love of Christ which, passes knowledge." And to this end we seek him in the scriptures. It is inthe scriptutres that we find him and by his spirit that he reveals himsef in the scriptures. Scriptures speak to us as we seek him. Revelation comes as he speaks. So seeking scriptures is essential to know him.

Now to our text.

Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge. of God and of Jesus our Lord.

Notice how the apostle starts off the epistle the same way he ends it, with a salutation to “Our God and Saviour Jesus Christ.” let me then share with you, six benefits of growing in the knowledge of our God Saviour.

1. Through the knowledge of God Grace and peace is multiplied to us

Grace and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God.  it is through the knowledge of god that is both his humanity and deity that knowledge is increased in us It is this knowledge that is truth only Jesus is truth man can see that they have chores but only Jesus is the truth only Jesus can say I am the truth it is therefore this knowledge in a man that gives him peace

2. Through the knowledge of God we understand Eternal Things
Through the knowledge of God we understand Eternal Things that he alone has given us the true life. Through his divine power has given to us all things are pertaining to life and godliness through the knowledge of him

3. Through the knowledge of God we receive divine power.
Thy word is sharper than a two edged sword one cannot speak truth without it dividing the thought and intents of the heart of. man. The gospel itself is an offense. It’s impossible to declare it without, it bringing man to a conclusion.  We share the word of life we break the bread of life. One cannot talk the word and not come alive on the inside for we have receive of his divine power. Some folks ate still hanging onto traditions though good yet there’s a higher level

4. Through the Knowledge of God we become partakers of his divine nature.
Verse four tells us. “text” whereby it is given unto u exceeding great and precious promises of babies you might be partakers of the divine nature“ When we understand do you manage your divinity of Christ we can understand Christ in us when we understand the humanity and divinity in Christ we can understand the lion and lamb in us until we know him as he is we can ever understand who we are

5. Through the Knowledge of God Grace and peace is multiplied to us

It is through the knowledge of his humanity and deity the grace is multiplied to us. To grow in grave yet be ignorant of God is to grow in knowledge but not the knowledge of god. Is the knowledge he attractive to you. Is it a discovery is it exciting. Are you finding out his attributes his essential attributes. His communicable attributes. Ate you growing on the knowledge of his fatherhood as  as you have been about his sonship. Is Jesus still a son to you as he was to the scribes and Pharisees or do you know him as the father

6. Through the knowledge of God we escape the corruption that is in the world
It is through the knowledge of his humanity and deity that we are able to escape the corruption that is in the world. His knowledge will make us grow in purity

A lady came to me the Other day she was a believer she said, I need deliverance.  we prayed for her God set her free, she was delivered of spirits and went to Bible school. My suggestion to her was this. Study the oneness of God.

The knowledge of his deity and humanity that he is both the one and only God gives is confidence.
The knowledge of his deity and humanity that he is both the one
The knowledge of his deity and humanity that he is both the one
The knowledge of his deity and humanity that he is both the one
