…who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth – 1 Timothy 2:4NASB.
In the world today, God’s people are suffering because of lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). Not the people of the world, but the Christians.
You have to know the truth about your life in Christ Jesus because the truth that you know will free you. The same God who saved your spirit from perishing in hell also wants your earthly bodies to be saved from perishing in this earthly life through sickness and disease. You do this by the acknowledging of every good thing in you in Christ Jesus. Knowledge of the truth, it is.
God not only does He want you to be free; He wants you to be free indeed. This can be achieved by studying God’s word – which is the divine truth. Incidentally a lot of Christians are not free indeed; they are ready for heaven but not free here on earth. They are poor in their lives, meanwhile God blessed them and said of them; to be fruitful and increase.
John 8:31-32 in summary says, “if you continue in my word, then you are disciplined enough to know the truth and you shall know the truth which will make you free”. You cannot know the truth unless you continue in God’s word for your life. After knowing the truth you have to live it out – you have to act on it – you have to practice it otherwise it won’t work for you.
