Knowing the Bible DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING. THAT ISN’T LIFE!
TO KNOW HIM IS LIFE!
A scholar once told me that I DIDN’T
know my Bible.
I told him he could be right, BUT I KNOW THE AUTHOR REAL WELL! That’s the main thing. He’ll take care of the rest.
Satan knows the Bible better than any of us.
So what we need is for GOD to come and LIVE IN US.
That is when WE BECOME ONE WITH GOD and HE BECOMES ALL WE THINK and TALK ABOUT!
W M B ~ I remember here not long ago, Billy, just before his conversion, he was with me.
And he said, “Daddy.” We was in a place, eating. There was a song going on, you know, like that.
He said, “Ain’t that a pretty song?”
And I said, “What song?”
And he said, “Daddy, you know there’s only one thing about you that’s wrong?”
And I said, “What’s that, Billy?”
He said, “The ONLY THING YOU THINK ABOUT IS CHRIST. That’s all.”
I said, “That’s a compliment, son.” Yes, sir.
He thought he’d get next to me, you see. But, that, that’s…That did. That’s what.
I—I—I just know Him. That’s all I want. “And TO KNOW HIM IS LIFE.”
Know these other things I don’t know about, it might—might identify as a smart man.
And I DON’T WANT TO BE A SMART MAN; I JUST WANT TO KNOW HIM.
“I know Him,” as Paul said, “In the power of His resurrection, that when He calls I’ll come out from among the dead.” That’s all. That’s all.
And I want Him. I want Him. I want my name on the right place.

W M B ~ Christianity has been represented to people as a declaration of creed.
Christianity is a living Being, Jesus Christ, the resurrected God, that’s alive and among us now. Christianity is a Person, not a creed.
“To know Him is Life.” NOT EVEN KNOW HIS WORD; THAT ISN’T LIFE.
“KNOW HIM,” and He is the Word.
A fellow said to me, not long ago, he said…I was just discussing about the…what we thought about a certain Scripture in the Bible.
This fellow was quite a scholar. He said, “Well, you just don’t know your Bible.”
I said, “I know the Author real well.” So, that’s the main thing, if I know Him. He will take care of the rest of it. “To know Him is Life.”

W M B ~ We can be a church member, and morally right, STILL NOT OBTAINED ETERNAL LIFE.
NOT to know the Word; some of them are theologians, and scholars, and Sunday school teachers, Bible expositors, but THAT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING.
Satan knows that Bible better than any of us.
The Bible said, “To know Him is Life,” NOT KNOW THE WORD. “KNOW HIM is Life.”
Satan also believes and trembles. But we’ve got to HAVE AN EXPERIENCE of a death, burial, and resurrection, from our old life, to the new Life which comes in Christ. IT COMES ONLY BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, the new Life.

W M B ~ God CAN do without you, He can do without me, but we CAN’T do without Him.
We’ve got to have Him, for HE IS LIFE, AND HE ALONE.
NOT TO KNOW HIS BOOK, not to know this, or know that, or know the creed. “But to KNOW HIM is Life,” know Him as the Person, Christ IN YOU, THE WORD MADE FLESH IN YOU.
THAT’S KNOWING HIM.
When He, you and He, became, BECOMES ONE, like I said last night in THE SUPER SIGN.
HE HAS GOT TO COME IN YOU. YOU!
GOD AND MAN MUST COME ONE. You’re conscious of your littleness.
