Both Old and Testament teach that God’s ways are Beyond Understanding, but His Being is not Beyond Knowing. Most people struggle with God because they are seeking to Understand God rather than to Know Him.
This I have discovered is the problem with trying to know God by a systematic study of the scriptures. In fact you can end up with purely an intellectual understanding of the facts about God, without really knowing Him. What happens is you end up with knowledge without knowing, do you really want a brain surgeon who only read the books about surgery?
The Tanach teaches that Adam and Eve Knew each other and they “became one.” Enoch that great mystic figure of the book of Genesis “walked with God and was no more.”
When God encourages us to know or reason with Him, it’s not so we will run to the bookstore in order to keep Barnes & Noble in business, but rather to establish a relationship that leads to the Father Heart of God. All study of God must be tempered with seeking to know God’s heart or it will lead to vanity, pride and narrowness of mind.
The only Ground upon which you can know God’s Being is a spiritual one for “God is Spirit.”
This seeking of God in order to know Him must be done with a quiet mind, and without the white noise of what you think you know about an Infinite God. The Pharisees did not see God in their midst in Christ, because the knowledge they had about God became a veil over their souls and a hinderance to their Spiritual Journey.
God is speaking in these days but as always it doesn’t fit what we understand how God did it in the Past. No I am not drunk as you see I am writing this blog in the morning, but rather “this is that which the prophets spoke about” a move of Gods Spirit.”
