Do Not Be Led Astray

6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge;
because you have rejected knowledge,
I reject you from being a priest to me.
And since you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.

Hosea 4:6

God tells Jeremiah that he will write his laws on our hearts and we will no longer need priests as intermediaries. But we still need priests and preachers and studied men to help us understand God.

God is one Gon in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. They are one triune God. And our Lord Jesus tells us that no one comes to the Father except through the Son. And He sends the Holy Spirit to help us understand.

The whole of God’s word is pleasing and nourishing to our spirits. We should spend time in all of it acquiring the knowledge of God.

But there is more to it than that. There are some who think parts of the Bible should be redacted or we should change how we read the Bible because of the present age. There are priests who wish us to not fully know God lest we be convicted of certain sins.

God tells us we should not do that. We should acquire knowledge of God. We should understand and accept God’s laws and strive to apply them in our lives. A day is coming when those who have misled God’s creation will be punished and those who were willing to be misled will be separated permanently from God.

Be sure you do not reject the full knowledge of knowing God. There is no hidden secret. There are no special chants. There is the Word. Through the Word you can know God. Do not be led astray.
