Hebrews 1:1-4 “Knowing God” Part 2

Lecture Given by Pastor Joshua Hall at Sparta Reformed Presbyterian Church during the evening service on December 16nd, 2018.

Introduction

Sinful Tendency: Believers are often persuaded to look outside of God’s means of revelation for knowledge of Himself, and so we imagine God to be like His creation. This is idolatry.

Proposition: God is Holy. He is not like us, though we are made in His image. We cannot know God by starting with a knowledge of ourselves but must know ourselves starting with a knowledge of God through His revelation.
