Introduction - Sometimes "perception" is everything!"

· The importance of this study:


"What comes into our minds when we think about God
is the most important thing about us."
- A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy


"We tend, by a secret law of the soul, to move toward
our mental image of God."
- A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy



The invitation of a lifetime:

How to see The Real God with 20/20 Vision:


· Three facts to consider:

1. God is not LIKE YOU
Isaiah 40:25-28
Romans 11:33-36

2. Left to ourselves, we tend to REDUCE God to MANAGEABLE TERMS
Romans 1:21-23
Exodus 32:1-6

3. God can only be known as He REVEALS HIMSELF to us!

Through:
1. NATURE (Psalm 19:1-2, Romans 1:19-20)
2. HIS WORD (John 1:1-4, 5:37-40)
3. JESUS, His Son (John 1:14-18, Hebrews 1:1-3)

· One question for you:
What must I do to see The Real God as He really is?

· Answer:
SEEK HIM (Jeremiah 29:11-14a)


· How? (Proverbs 2:1-5)

1 My son, if you will receive My words
And treasure My commandments within you,

2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom,
Incline your heart to understanding;

3 For if you cry for discernment,
Lift your voice for understanding;

4 If you seek her as silver
And search for her as for hidden treasures;

5 Then you will discern the fear of the
And discover the knowledge of God.
