How well do you really know God and his kingdom to come?
Those knowing your name will trust in you; you will never abandon those seeking you, O Jehovah.”—PS. 9:10.

SONG 56 Make the Truth Your Own

PREVIEW *

1-2. As illustrated by Angelito’s experience, what must each of us do?

ARE you being raised by parents who are Jehovah’s Witnesses? If so, bear in mind that you cannot inherit a personal relationship with Jehovah from them. Whether our parents serve God or not, each of us must build his own friendship with Jehovah.

2 Consider the experience of a brother named Angelito. He was raised in a Witness family. However, when he was younger, he did not feel particularly close to God. He admits, “I was serving Jehovah simply because I wanted to do what my family was doing.” However, Angelito decided to invest time in reading God’s Word and meditating on it, and he began praying to Jehovah more frequently. The result? Angelito says, “I learned that the only way to be close to my dear Father, Jehovah, is to get to know him myself.” Angelito’s experience raises some important questions: What is the difference between being acquainted with Jehovah and knowing him well? And how do we come to know Jehovah?

3. What is the difference between knowing about Jehovah and knowing him well?

3 We can say that a person knows about Jehovah if he is aware of God’s name or is familiar with some of the things that He has said or done. But to know Jehovah well involves more. We need to spend time learning about Jehovah and his wonderful qualities. Only then can we begin to understand what motivates him to speak and to act. That will help us to discern whether he approves of our opinions, decisions, and actions. Once we have discerned Jehovah’s will for us, we need to act on what we have learned.

4. How will considering examples in the Bible help us?

4 Some people may ridicule us for wanting to serve Jehovah, and they may oppose us even more when we start to associate with his people. Yet, if we trust in Jehovah, he will never let us down. We will be laying a foundation for friendship with God that will last a lifetime. Can we really know Jehovah that well? Yes, we can! The examples set by imperfect men, such as Moses and King David, prove that it is possible. As we consider their actions, we will answer two questions: How did they come to know Jehovah? And what lessons can we learn from their examples?

Re: How well do you really know God and his kingdom to come?
The creator doesn't answer prayers. He doesn't care about HIS creation. He got butt hurt when the first human pair chose beelzebubs rulership over his... and rightly so. Then he had some seeking his guidance, (the israelites) and he guided and blessed them till they killed his Son. Now he seems to be a sado-masochist with all the suffering that is going on.

He says he would like all to be saved.... that could happen very easily. He could touch man's heart like he is going to touch the hearts of all the animals in the new system.... lion will lay down with the lamb... a child will play over an adder's hole and not be harmed.

He created man's heart and even said that it was the most treacherous thing. He put all the desires into mankind then holds us accountable when we react to them.

all problems with mankind originated with the creator. directly or indirectly HE is accountable.
When firestone made tires that were faulty and ended up with overturned vehicles, was it the tires fault???!? NO, it was the company who made them.

Yes I worship Jehovah, yes I am a Piece of dirt, but I'm tired of being told it's my fault. I didn't ask to be here. He screwed up - why else would he allow his son to go thru what he did to buy back mankind.

I probably won't see you in the next life mainly because I throw it back in His face, but someone has to point out the injustice.

Ask and it shall be given - false
you can live a fulfilled life now - false

MOSES SAW “THE ONE WHO IS INVISIBLE”

5. What did Moses choose to do?

5 Moses acted on what he learned. When he was about 40 years old, Moses chose to associate with God’s people, the Hebrews, rather than to be known as “the son of Pharaoh’s daughter.” (Heb. 11:24) Moses gave up a prominent position. By siding with the Hebrews, who were slaves in Egypt, he risked the wrath of Pharaoh, a powerful ruler who was viewed as a god. What an outstanding act of faith! Moses trusted in Jehovah. Such trust is a foundation stone of a lasting relationship.—Prov. 3:5.

For the folks who claim simply that "the kingdom of God is within you".

1. Where is kingdom's throne? The Father's throne isn't inside of us.

2. Is a new heaven going to happen INSIDE US when Christ returns?

3. Is a new earth going to be formed INSIDE US?

4. How about the New Jerusalem?

5. So...when we die we go "into our own selves"?????

6. So Ezekial was taken "inside himself" instead of heaven ABOVE?

7. How about Isaiah?

8. How about John in Revelation?

9. How about Enoch?

10. Paul was taken "UP" to heaven?

11. Jesus ASCENDED "into people"???

12. So "the Father's house" and the "many mansions" that Jesus talks about - are ALL inside of US - where YOU say the kingdom of God exists?

13. ALL the souls under the alter in Revelation 6:9 are "inside us"???

6. What can we learn from Moses’ example?

6 What is the lesson for us? Like Moses, all of us have a decision to make: Will we choose to serve God and associate with his people? We may have to make sacrifices to serve God, and we risk being opposed by those who do not know Jehovah. But if we trust in our heavenly Father, we can count on his support!

7-8. What did Moses continue to learn?

7 Moses continued to learn about Jehovah’s qualities and to do His will. For example, when Moses was asked to lead the nation of Israel out of captivity, he lacked confidence and repeatedly told Jehovah that he felt unqualified. God responded with real compassion, providing help for Moses. (Ex. 4:10-16) As a result, Moses was able to deliver powerful judgment messages to Pharaoh. Moses then saw Jehovah use His power as He saved the Israelites but destroyed Pharaoh and his forces in the Red Sea.—Ex. 14:26-31; Ps. 136:15.

8 After Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt, they constantly found things to complain about. Even so, Moses observed Jehovah’s great patience in dealing with the people He had freed from slavery. (Ps. 78:40-43) Moses also saw Jehovah show remarkable humility when He changed His mind after Moses asked Him to do so.—Ex. 32:9-14

9. According to Hebrews 11:27, how close was Moses’ relationship with Jehovah?

9 After the Exodus, Moses’ relationship with Jehovah became so close that it was as if he could see his heavenly Father. (Read Hebrews 11:27.) Indicating how intimate that relationship was, the Bible says: “Jehovah spoke to Moses face-to-face, just as one man would speak to another man.”—Ex. 33:11.

10. To know Jehovah well, what do we have to do?

10 What is the lesson for us? To know Jehovah well, we not only have to learn about his qualities but also have to do his will. Jehovah’s will today is that “all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth.” (1 Tim. 2:3, 4) One way we do God’s will is by teaching others about Jehovah.

Who made you the judge of such things over other men? Is that the only criteria the Lord will use? What if one never came across scripture, these people would be impossibly cutoff from the Father?
