God is spirit, therefore He is invisible. Meeting and knowing God in Person happens at a spirit level.
Not by human senses, but by spirit-to-spirit revelation through the eyes of faith. The Holy Spirit was
sent by Father God to help us see His Son Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit was given to open our faith-
eyes to the truth of Jesus. Father God has given us his Holy Scriptures as a portrait of Jesus, to see
Jesus. By grace through faith we can get to personally see and know Jesus himself because God
presents Him to us in the Bible. Through the Holy Spirit and God’s Word we can first hand and
truthfully know the Person, purposes and practices of Jesus Christ.
See John 15:26, 16:13-15; 1 John 2:27, 5:9-12; 1 Corinthians 2:9-16; John 1:1, 14, 5:39-40, 6:45, 14:6; Revelation 19:10, 13.
Jesus is known through intimacy with Him rather than information about Him. Jesus is not known
by human reasoning, but only by Holy Spirit revelation – ever within a loving personal relationship
with Jesus. People who truly know Jesus know Him by heart! Jesus also reveals Himself through His
creation, His church, His people, and His activities – but these are always in line with the Bible.
Jesus has already presented all of Himself to us. Now we need to choose to present all of ourselves
to Jesus if we want to truly know and follow Him. We present all of ourselves to Jesus through faith,
full repentance, and committing our all to love, to know, and to live Jesus. True repentance is to
turn away from all our sin, all our self, all religiosity and all worldliness to Jesus self. self.
Below are some God given instructions about knowing, following and living Jesus. We can only know, follow and live Jesus on God’s terms! For each of the following Scriptures, please read
What does God say about meeting, knowing, following and living Jesus himself?

The choice in front of you is now very clear. The grace based salvation invitation from God is this:
Jesus calls you to choose between your own life and His Eternal Life. If you repent and forsake your
own life, then by grace through faith you can have Christ himself as your new Eternal Life.
You cannot have your own life and God’s eternal Christ Life. You have to choose one, and then
operate by what you have chosen: Your own life…or God’s Christ Life. Which one are you choosing?
To be saved is to be born again, is to be divinely brought into Christ Jesus is your Eternal Life.
You have to be birthed spiritually by God himself to be God’s child. What do these Scriptures teach
you about being born again through the Holy Spirit and receiving Christ himself as your Eternal Life?

How can you be sure that you are a child of God? The Holy Spirit and Holy Scripture will give you full
assurance as you choose to fully embrace and to live by the grace of what God himself did and said.
