“Getting Revelations Through Prayer” – part two
Knowing God intimately
The highest form of worship is knowing God intimately. In Acts 17 the people were worshipping the God they did not know and were rebuked for it. In this second of a three part series on Getting Revelations Through Prayer we learn how to know the God we worship. The people at the north campus received this message with open humble hearts. And therefore the worship that filled the house was on a different level.
Some things you learn from books and teachers (preachers) and some things the Father wants you to get from divine revelation while reading His Holy Word. The closer you get to Him the easier it will be to hear His still quiet voice. Remember that prayer is a two way communication with your heavenly Father. Speak to him. Listen to him.
